To investigate contributing factors to increasing or decreasing spasticity in people with spinal cord injury
To develop a registry of research volunteers for the Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research
To provide individuals who are interested in research a way to be contacted about current and future studies.
To determine the factors that are associated with successful clinical use of the Ekso Bionics powered exoskeleton system for ambulation by persons with in the rehabilitation setting. This system consists of a brace (exoskeleton) which extends from the torso to the feet with battery-powered motorized hinges that produce joint motion at the hips and knees, and is capable of producing powered walking. Subjects will be trained to use the exoskeleton to balance and simulate walking.
To enhance independent walking function in people with incomplete SCI by adding adaptive resistance at targeted phase of walking during BWSTT in order to augment motor adaptation.
To study differences in upper arm strength and reflexes after chronic spinal cord injury, and how strength and reflexes change after taking certain medications.
This study involves a survey, and a wheelchair skills test, and you may choose to participate in one or both of these components.
To understand the neural mechanisms underlying supramaximal volitional force generation in individuals with motor incomplete spinal cord injury.
To learn about the mechanisms associated with restoration of walking in people with spinal cord injuries after repetitive step training.
To track the long-term consequences of SCI, the national database involves gathering information from participants’ medical charts and a follow-up interview at one year post-injury, then every five years.
