To determine if aortic enlargement is present in traumatic SCI patients after the first 5 years post 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.
Measuring Quality of Life in Spinal Cord Injury: The Next Generation of Instruments
To understand the neural mechanisms underlying supramaximal volitional force generation in individuals with motor incomplete spinal cord injury.
To learn if training using a walking robotic device (Lokomat) and/or a new oral medication (Tizanidine) are effective in reducing stiffness in your muscles and providing functional improvements in your walking capacity.
To investigate the use of serotonergic agents on motor function in subacute and chronic SCI.
