Motor Learning Approach for Manual Wheelchair Users

The project objective is to conduct a pilot randomized control trial (RCT) examining (1) the number of task-specific repetitions required to produce change in wheelchair propulsion techniques and (2) identifying the most conducive surface (overground or on a stationary device such as rollers) for implementing a repetition-based manual wheelchair propulsion ...

Investigation of Brain Functional MRI as an Early Biomarker of Recovery in Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury

Early detection of response to spinal cord injury (SCI) therapeutic intervention programs is vital, as it will enable early termination of intervention in non-responding patients, prevent unnecessary financial burden, and allow for early changes of the programs. In this project, the investigators propose that resting state functional MRI (rsfMRI) can ...

Outcomes After Spinal Cord Injury (OASIS)

The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center estimates 282,000 people in the US live with spinal cord injury (SCI), with approximately 17,000 new cases occurring each year. There has been tremendous progress in the medical and rehabilitative management of people who have sustained SCI including improved clinical outcomes, decreased mortality ...

Optimized Recovery After Trauma in Geriatric Patient

At present, there is evidence that structured care within healthcare (CGA and ERAS) increases the conditions for good care and better recoveries after acute conditions, planned and unplanned surgery. However, there are gaps in knowledge regarding elderly patients who are cared for within the surgical context. In this project we ...

Investigation Into an Innovative Clinical Slip Inducing Device in the Chronic Incomplete Spinal Cord Population

All planks appear the same but can be adjusted on the underside allowing for it to be stable or can allow a slip in the forward and/or backward direction of up to 8 inches. This distance was determined from a review of slip bio-mechanics that noted that a slip is ...

NuShield in Surgical Peroneal Tendon Repair

The objective of this clinical trial is to evaluate both the safety and efficacy of using the NuShield allograft in addition to standard of care surgical procedures in subjects requiring surgical repair of the peroneal tendon. The effects of this treatment will be assessed using: Questionnaires Visual Analog Scale Foot ...

Phase N/A

Probiotic Prophylaxis for Microbiome Modulation and VAP or Infections Prevention in Multitrauma Patients

The oropharyngeal swab will be collected on days 1, 3 and 7 after ICU admission and upon the occurrence of VAP or other infection. Nonbronchoscopic bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) using a protected catheter will be collected on day 3 after ICU admission and upon the occurrence of VAP. Whole blood sample ...

Effect of Giving Reduced Fluid in Children After Trauma

Aggressive fluid resuscitation has been the cornerstone of early post-operative and trauma management for decades. However, recent prospective adult studies have challenged this practice, linking high volume crystalloid resuscitation to increased mortality, cardiopulmonary, gastrointestinal and hematologic complications. A retrospective study the investigators recently performed at their quaternary-care children's hospital echoed ...

Neuroendocrine Risk for PTSD in Women

The majority of Americans will experience a traumatic event during their lifetimes. However, women are twice as likely as men to experience negative psychiatric outcomes following trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. The reason for the increased prevalence in women is unclear, partially because of the historical lack ...

The Effects of Meditation and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on Chronic Wounds

Each year, Community Care Access Centers (CCAC) provide long-term wound care for over 22,000 patients in Ontario, with numbers steadily increasing with the aging population. In Ontario, the cost of community care for lower leg ulcers has been estimated at over $500 million per year. This does not include the ...
