Investigating Kinematic and Electromyographic Changes After SCI and Their Relation to Clinical and Functional Outcome

The study aims at discerning specific gait patterns and elucidating locomotor control of spinal cord injured patients in order to find sensitive kinematic and electromyographic outcome measures that are able to reveal information on underlying mechanisms of normal and aberrant gait control and its recovery over time. These measures may ...

Phase N/A

Diaphragm Pacing After Spinal Cord Injury

Subject recruitment. Patients with acute, traumatic C-SCIs, scheduled to receive intramuscular diaphragm pacing OR who have recently received a diaphragm pacer (within past 5-days) will be recruited from two Level-1 trauma hospitals serving North Florida - UF Health Shands Hospitals in Gainesville and Jacksonville, Florida. Enrollment. Patients with acute, traumatic ...

Phase N/A

Restoring Walking With a Powered Exoskeleton After Spinal Cord Injury

A prospective, pilot, cohort study design will recruit participants to train intensively for a 3 month period. The training sessions will be documented in detail, including number of steps taken, speed of walking, distance of walking. Once walking speed has plateaued, we will evaluate the feasibility of using the device ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Two Psycho-educational Family Group Interventions for Persons With SCI and Their Caregivers

Each year over 12,000 spinal cord injuries (SCI) occur in the United States. These injuries result in incredibly difficult, long-term, life adjustments both for patients and their caregivers. Many families continue to struggle with the physical, emotional and social impacts of SCI for months and years after the injury. Family ...

Phase N/A

Neurofeedback for Treatment of Central Neuropathic Pain (CNP) in Sub-acute Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) affects a person's ability to move and feel sensation in the body. SCI is also an indirect cause of a persistent pain, called Central Neuropathic Pain (CNP). This pain typically develops several months after the injury. In 30-40% of SCI patients, severe CNP affects their everyday ...

Phase N/A

Recovery of Cardiovascular Function With Epidural Stimulation After Human Spinal Cord Injury

Methods and Procedures General Experimental Design. We will enroll 4 research participants who have sustained a motor complete SCI to participate in the proposed experiments. Our novel approach of conducting repeated experiments with comprehensive assessments in a smaller cohort of patients rather than a more traditional approach of including a ...

Phase N/A

Electrical Stimulation for Continence After Spinal Cord Injury

Human subjects will be recruited at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System from people with clinically complete spinal cord injury. Subjects who meet the selection criteria described below will be screened to identify those whose reflex bladder contractions are inhibited by neuromodulation using low levels of electrical stimulation via ...

Phase N/A

Sexual Health of Spinal Cord Injured Females

Multicentre, prospective study, aiming to assess the effect on sexuality of an information and education program in women with spinal cord injury. Included patients will be women hospitalized for initial rehabilitation, and will be included two weeks before their first return to home. Socio-demographic data, diagnosis and etiology, secondary conditions, ...

Phase N/A

Fenofibrate Treatment in SCI

Although considered a modifiable risk factor for coronary artery disease (CAD) in the general population, the magnitude of physical activity required to promote cardiorespiratory fitness and a clinically meaningful change in blood-derived biomarkers of CAD is not achievable in those with a severe physical disability, such as with immobilizing paralysis ...


Stimulation With Wire Leads to Restore Cough

Patients with cervical spinal cord injuries often have paralysis of a major portion of their expiratory muscles the muscles responsible for coughing and therefore, lack a normal cough mechanism. Consequently, most of these patients suffer from a markedly reduced ability to clear airway secretions, a factor which contributes to the ...
