Efficacy Study for Geko Device in VLU Patients

Screen patient database to identify eligible patients Obtain informed consent and inform participant's GP Complete CRF throughout the study period (demographics, vital signs, medical history, study ulcer history, concomitant medication) Physical examination at the study start up visit and at consecutive weekly visits Take a digital image of the wound ...

Phase N/A

Acupuncture for the Blunt Chest Trauma

Introduction Chest blunt trauma accounts in up to 65% of polytrauma patients. In patients with 0-2 rib fracture, the treatment is relatively limited to oral pain killer and breathing exercise. The patients will suffer two weeks of severe pain accompanied with poor sleep and inability to preform simple daily live ...

Phase N/A

Battlefield Acupuncture Following Shoulder Surgery

The purpose of this randomized clinical trial is to determine the effectiveness of Battlefield Acupuncture (BFA) in addition to standard post-surgical shoulder physical therapy compared to a standard shoulder rehabilitation program in reducing medication use and pain in patients who have undergone shoulder surgery. Measurements of medication (opioid, NSAID, acetaminophen, ...

Phase N/A

Transformation of Paralysis to Stepping

Aim 1: Define the relative effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical stimulation at multiple stimulation spinal sites and oral Buspirone in facilitating nonweight-bearing (gravity neutral device, GND) and weight-bearing (treadmill) stepping in individuals with chronic motor complete paralysis. Aim 1.1: Define the relative effectiveness of transcutaneous electrical stimulation at multiple spinal sites ...

Phase N/A

Scapular Movement Training Versus General Exercises for Individuals With Shoulder Pain

This is a double-blinded randomized controlled trial. Sixty-four subjects with shoulder pain, scapular dyskinesis, and positive scapular assistance test will be randomized in two groups: Scapular Movement Training, and 2) General Exercises. The Scapular Movement Training Group will receive the orientation about proper scapular position and movement, and will be ...

Phase N/A

A Pilot Trial of Disposable Nitrous Oxide Canisters in Providing Pain Control During Burn Dressing Changes

The normal challenges of using narcotics are increased in burn patients, who have significantly altered metabolism. Unfortunately, the use of regular general anesthesia or conscious sedation is not a viable option due to the resources required, and as the hypermetabolism of burn injury would result in compromised wound healing with ...

Phase N/A

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

Effectiveness of Physiotherapy Following PRP for Chronic Whiplash

This will be a single case with randomized multiple baseline experimental design with enrolment of 3 patients undergoing PRPt, and 3 patients undergoing PRPu following PRP. There will be a variable length baseline (A1) and then a staggered start to provide internal validity - one patient starting at 5 days ...

Phase N/A

Psychosocial Cognitive and Behavioral Consequences of Sleep-disordered Breathing After SCI

SCI is a potentially catastrophic event for individuals who may sustain motor, sensory, and autonomic deficit, as well as secondary conditions including SRBDs. The SRBDs include central, obstructive and mixed sleep apnea that can occur in up to 50% of the paraplegics and up to 91% of the motor complete ...

Phase N/A

Neurophysiology of Weakness and Exercise in Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy

The long-term goal of our research agenda is to identify the mechanisms associated with rotator cuff tendinopathy (impingement syndrome) and subsequently evaluate novel treatment strategies that address these mechanisms. The objectives of this application are to study the muscle patterns in patients with rotator cuff tendinopathy as well as the ...
