The purpose of this study is to determine whether a novel treadmill training intervention can improve the gait stabilization strategy used by individuals who have experienced a stroke.
Every year, approximately 15,000 American Veterans experience a stroke, with an estimated cost of acute and follow-up care in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Following a stroke, the restoration or improvement of walking is a high-ranking goal among patients, but only about half of the population is able to return to typical levels of community ambulation. The resultant decrease in independent mobility is strongly associated with a decline in quality of life. Gait instability is a common contributor to limited mobility through either an increased fall-risk or fear of falling, but current interventions to address post-stroke gait instability have had limited success. This project will conduct initial testing of a novel elastic force-field designed to improve post-stroke gait stability through targeted motor learning. The results of these experiments will serve as the basis for the development of novel gait rehabilitation techniques, which have the potential to increase the quality of life of thousands of Veterans and save millions of dollars.

Post-stroke individuals continue to suffer from significant motor impairments years after the stroke. Motor recovery is usually limited to the first 6 month after the stroke, in which the ...
Inducing a systematic perturbation forces on the hand during arm reaching movement may improve adaptation. Error-augmentation (EA) training is relatively new concept in motor learning inte...
This is a multi-site study to examine error-related brain activity (i.e., the error-related negativity) and anxiety symptoms in 11 to 14 year-olds (N=600) at two time points separated by t...
Self evaluating tools based on smartphone devices are public available on the market for each person. The tools are used to estimate the existing refractive error for each eye of a patient...
The goal of this research study is to increase understanding of error augmentation by applying it to visual feedback during motion tracking with a Leap Motion device - a recently developed...
Stroke recovery studies have shown the efficacy of bimanual training on upper limb functional recovery and others have shown the efficacy of feedback technology that augments error.
When a lightly touched surface is moved according to a closed-loop control law, it has been shown in young adults that the Centre of Pressure (CoP) can be displaced in a controllable way without the c...
The bottleneck account for post-error slowing assumes that cognitive resources are depleted after errors and thus the processing of subsequent events is delayed. To test this, we used a novel speeded-...
Empirical research demonstrates that when the time following error commission is constrained, subsequent sensory processing can be impaired (Buzzell et al., 2017). This reduction in sensory processing...
The objective of the study was to: a) characterize the frequency, type, and outcome of anesthetic medication errors spanning an 8.5-year period, b) describe the targeted error reduction strategies and...
The introduction of error due to systematic differences in the characteristics between those selected and those not selected for a given study. In sampling bias, error is the result of failure to ensure that all members of the reference population have a known chance of selection in the sample.
Work consisting of an acknowledgment of an error, issued by a publisher, editor, or author. It customarily cites the source where the error occurred, giving complete bibliographic data for retrieval. In the case of books and monographs, author, title, imprint, paging, and other helpful references will be given; in the case of journal articles, the author, title, paging, and journal reference will be shown. An erratum notice is variously cited as Errata or Corrigenda.
Information systems, usually computer-assisted, that enable providers to initiate medical procedures, prescribe medications, etc. These systems support medical decision-making and error-reduction during patient care.

Stroke - Cerebrovascular Disease (CVA)
A stroke is a serious medical condition that occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off. Strokes are a medical emergency and prompt treatment is essential because the sooner a person receives treatment for a stroke, the less damage is ...
