Randomized Comparative Trial for Persistent Pain in Spinal Cord Injury: Acupuncture vs Aspecific Needle Skin Stimulation

About 67% of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) experience painful symptoms in the course of life after injury and a third evaluates the pain as "severe", with a significant impact on quality of life, due to limitations in daily activities and autonomy. Persistent pain can be of different origin ...

Phase N/A

RIPT Feasibility Trial

The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) is very high in trauma patients, secondary to tissue injury, venous status from immobilization, and thrombophilia. As such, early initiation of VTE prophylaxis is essential in this population. The competing risks of life threatening hemorrhage and VTE need to be considered very carefully. Potential ...

Phase N/A

Nurse-Family Partnership Impact Evaluation in South Carolina

This study is an individual-level randomized controlled trial, with randomization post-consent. The study will enroll pregnant women who are income-eligible for Medicaid, less than 28 weeks pregnant, and have not had a previous live birth. All eligible applicants who provide written consent will be randomly assigned either to a treatment ...

Phase N/A

Progressive Resistance Training in Acute Spinal Cord Injury

The trial and recruitment will be conducted at the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit (QENSIU), Glasgow. Individuals with tetraplegia and upper limb weakness will be randomly allocated to receive either a tailored progressive resistance training (PRT) programme alongside usual care or usual care alone. Up to 30 participants admitted ...

Phase N/A

Novel Virtual Reality for Burn Wound Care Pain in Adolescents

Burn wounds cause intense, complex pain, and subsequent burn wound care causes further intense, episodic pain that is often unrelieved by opioid and non-opioid medications, resulting in under-treatment of pain. Further, opioid analgesics can have untoward side effects including respiratory depression, nausea, constipation, pruritus, drowsiness, lethargy, dependence, and induced hyperalgesia. ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Balance and Trunk Muscle Endurance in Dancers

Dance is a form of exercise associated with movements that require balance, flexibility, endurance and skill. In addition to maintaining balance, the endurance of the trunk stabilizer muscles has an important role in sport-specific activities, coordination and athletic performance. Studies which conducted on dancers are mainly focused on abdominal muscle ...

Phase N/A

Standing Stepping and Voluntary Movement Spinal Cord Epidural Stimulation

This study will determine the level of functional gain, below the injury for voluntary control of movements, and recovery standing and stepping function as a result of activation of spinal circuits with scES in humans with severe paralysis. Training will consist of practicing stepping, standing and voluntary movements in the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Physical Functions in Lower Limb Burn Injury

Patients with lower extremity burns experience problems with range of motion, muscle strength, balance and gait. These problems contribute to prolonged physical disability, return to work or deterioration of work capacity and thus lead to a negative impact on quality of life. In addition to studies showing that quality of ...

Phase N/A

Zinc Oxide Versus Petrolatum Following Skin Surgery

Patients who have undergone dermatologic excision for any indication with or without Mohs micrographic surgical technique and surgically closed in linear fashion with scar length of greater than or equal to 4.5cm on any site but the scalp will be approached for enrollment in the study. Any closure in which ...

Phase N/A

Dose-Response Effects of Whole Body Vibration on Spasticity and Walking in SCI

Phase 1 of this study has been successfully completed. The results of Phase 1 indicate that a single session of WBV lasting for a total of 6 minutes (delivered in eight 45-sec bouts) at a high-frequency (50Hz) was associated with the largest decrease in spasticity (as measured by the pendulum ...
