The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of VR-based treadmill training on walking ability. Researchers are also examining changes in thinking ability and brain activity as a result of the VR-based treadmill training.
Participants complete walking, sitting, and standing tests using Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS). fNIRS is a technique that uses infrared light to detect changes in blood level in the brain while a person performs a task.
Participation lasts approximately 4 weeks, including 10 training visits (up to 1 hour each), 1 consenting visit, and 2 data collection visits (up to 5 hours each).
- Individuals aged 18-35 diagnosed with TBI
- at least 6 months post injury
- able to tolerate upright standing for up to 30 minutes
- have stable blood pressure.
Participants who complete the study receive $100.
