Found (158) clinical trials

The purpose of the study is to measure the efficacy of nerve transfer surgery in the treatment of patients with complete cervical spinal cord injuries with no hand function. Participants must be willing and able to attend study visits and therapy visits. Participants will be followed until they are 4 years …

Phase N/A

Nerve Transfer After Spinal Cord Injury- Multi-center

Study Design and Feasibility: A prospective multi-institutional non-randomized single arm design will be utilized. Seventy subjects with cervical ASIA A-B (International Standards for Neurological Classification of Spinal Cord Injury) SCI and hand function impairment that fit the International Classification for Surgery of the Hand 0-4 will be identified. Only patients …

Statin Monotherapy for Treatment of Endocrine Metabolic Disease Risk

Rationale: Individuals with motor-complete spinal cord injury (SCI) undergo dramatic changes in body composition in the first 18 months post-injury, including declines in bone mineral density (BMD) that increase lower-extremity fragility fracture risk, and increases in fat mass that increase cardio-metabolic disease (CMD) risk. While statins are an effective treatment …


Cortical Recording and Stimulating Array Brain-Machine Interface

Individuals with tetraplegia (paralysis caused by illness or injury that results in partial or total loss of the use of the arms and legs) have intact brain function but are unable to move due to injury or disease affecting the spinal cord, nerves or muscles. Brain-machine interface (BMI) technology is …

Phase N/A

Comparison of Transcutaneous and Epidural Spinal Stimulation for Improving Function

The purpose of this study is to determine the optimal method for delivering spinal stimulation to improve walking in people with incomplete spinal cord injury. By directly comparing non-invasive transcutaneous (TransQ) stimulation with implanted epidural stimulation, investigators hope to guide the field toward the most beneficial method for restoration of …

Speed of Robotic Leg Movements and Orthostatic Hypotension in Subacute SCI

Orthostatic hypotension (OH) refers to a drop in blood pressure as a result of sitting up or standing up (moving against gravity). OH has been defined as a decrease in systolic (20 mmHg) or diastolic (10 mmHg) blood pressure upon transition from lying down to an upright position regardless of …

Phase N/A

Mobile Health Self-Management and Support System for Chronic and Complex Health Conditions

Individuals with chronic and complex conditions such as those with spinal cord injury (SCI),Cerebral Palsy (CP), Spina Bifida (SB), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), often require complex self-management routines to manage various needs such as bowel and bladder, skin integrity, and general health and wellness. Tasks such as self-catheterization, bowel …

Phase N/A

Modulating Neuropathic Pain With Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

This study will look at the effects of a painless, non-invasive form of brain stimulation, called transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS. tDCS is thought to increase the brain's ability to change. Participants will be assigned to one of three groups by chance. Two groups will receive tDCS at a …

Phase N/A

Internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

In Canada the prevalence of spinal cord injury (SCI) is approximately 85,556, with incidence rates of traumatic and non-traumatic SCI at 1,785 and 2,286 cases per year, respectively. Common secondary health conditions experienced by individuals with SCI include psychological distress and pain. Appropriate management of these secondary conditions, through a …
