An Exercise Intervention to Reduce Neuropathic Pain and Brain Inflammation After Spinal Cord Injury

This clinical trial will utilize a randomized, controlled, crossover design. Participants will be randomized to (A) 12 weeks of FES-RT followed by 12 weeks of treatment as usual or (B) 12 weeks of treatment as usual followed by 12 weeks of FES-RT. Randomization will be computer generated and the study ...

Phase N/A

Spinal Cord Injury Exercise and Nutrition Conceptual Engagement

The purpose of this proposal is to evaluate and compare the health benefits of home-based functional electrical stimulation leg cycle ergometry plus diet (HBFESLCE + Diet) to home-based (HB) Diet alone. This is a randomized, baseline-controlled, prospective, interventional trial to assess the impact of a 16-week exercise and/or diet intervention ...

Phase N/A

Suturing With U-Technique Versus Un-Reapproximated Wound Edges During Removal of Closed Thoracostomy Tube Drain

Background: Closed thoracostomy tube drainage or chest tube insertion is one of the most commonly performed procedures in thoracic surgery. There are several published evidence-based guidelines on safe performance of a chest tube insertion. However, there is absence of any prospective controlled trial or systematic review, that scientifically proves the ...

Phase N/A

Use of Adhesive Elastic Taping for the Therapy of Medium/Severe Pressure Ulcers in Spinal Cord Injured Patients

All patients with a significant deficiency of skin sensitivity and reduced mobility are potentially at risk of Pressure Ulcers (PUs), in particular the persons affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), also due to their frequent alteration or loss of subcutaneous skin sensitivity. More than one-third of individuals hospitalized in Spinal ...

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

Management of Moderately Hypoxemic Thoracic Trauma

TrOMaTho study is an investigator-initiated, randomized, unblinded, controlled trial. The aim of this study is to compare a prophylactic use of high-flow nasal cannula oxygenation (experimental group) to low-flow oxygenation (control group) after thoracic trauma. 770 patients will be included. Randomization will be conducted with random block and patients will ...

Phase N/A

Transcutaneous Spinal Stimulation: Safety and Feasibility for Upper Limb Function in Children With Spinal Cord Injury

Adults with cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) rank gaining arm and hand function as the highest priority for improving their quality of life. Children with SCI, similarly experience paralysis of hand and arm muscles that limits their engagement in play and exploration typical for child development . Furthermore, pediatric-onset SCI ...

Phase N/A

Treating Cognitive Deficits in Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

The objectives of the currently proposed randomized clinical trial are to (1) apply a treatment protocol for Processing Speed and Learning and memory impairments, well-validated in other neurological populations, to individuals with SCI with objectively observable deficits in these areas and document efficacy on standard neuropsychological testing; (2) assess the ...

Phase N/A

Daily Intermittent Hypoxia and Task-Specific Upper Limb Training in Persons With Chronic Incomplete SCI

The objective of this research project is to determine the effect of a 5-day intervention with daily acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) therapy, either alone or coupled with task-specific training, on upper extremity function in individuals with chronic, incomplete SCI. Previous work already determined that breathing low levels of oxygen for ...

Phase N/A

Improve Dynamic Lateral Balance of Humans With SCI

A major goal of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) is to regain walking ability, as limitations in mobility can affect most activities of daily living. In addition, patients with SCI may experience a higher incidence of falls due to impaired balance and gait. Dynamic balance control plays a crucial ...
