Assessing Spinal Cord Structure Changes Using Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Patients With Incomplete Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury
The purpose of this study is to use a special MRI technology to assess changes in nerve fibers of the spinal cord in acute incomplete spinal cord injury patients (SCI patients who still have some ability to move their limbs) and in healthy control subjects.
The purpose of this research study is to investigate the effectiveness of a memory retraining program and a processing speed program in a spinal cord injured (SCI) population. Processing speed is the time it takes a person to process new information.
This study investigates the occurrence of geographic mobility, neighborhood influences, and the relationship between housing instability and health and well-being for people with chronic spinal cord injury.
Researchers are collecting information about types and frequency of wheelchair breakdowns and repairs using a smartphone app. The information collected will help researchers track the types of wheelchair failures to inform wheelchair users.
Participants complete surveys about themselves and
The purpose of this study is to gather information regarding usage of Complementary and Integrative Healthcare (CIH) used by people with SCI. Researchers are interested in examining the barriers and facilitators to usage of CIH by people with SCI. CIH includes products (e.g. herbs, vitamins, and
Examining Behavioral and Neural Aspects of Implicit Procedural Learning Performance in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injuries
The purpose of this research study is to learn about different types of memory abilities in people who have a spinal cord injury (SCI) and how those abilities relate to brain functioning.
|The objectives of this study include establishing innovative projects for the delivery, demonstration and evaluation of comprehensive medical, vocational and other rehabilitation services to meet the wide range of needs of individuals with spinal cord injuries.|
Mapping the Community Context for a Better Understanding of Community Integration and Participation after SCI
Researchers are interested in understanding the places where people with disabilities live, work, and socialize. We are examining how various aspects of the environment (like accessibility or barriers to community places such as grocery stores or doctor's offices) influence community participation
ReInventing Yourself after SCI: A multi-site randomized controlled trial of an intervention to improve outcomes after spinal cord injury
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefits of a group education treatment program to improve self-efficacy in people living with Spinal Cord Injury or Disorder (SCI/D). Self-efficacy is a person's belief in his or her ability to achieve goals, complete tasks, or solve future problems.
