Strengthening Health Systems for Persons With Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury in South Africa and Sweden

A traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) often causes an unprecedented change in functioning by altering bodily structure and function. More specifically, the direct consequences of TSCI to the motor, sensory and autonomic nervous system not only challenge an individual's independency but also the ability to make a positive adjustment to life after injury. In line with this, TSCI survivors often experience threats to their livelihood and becoming integrated members of society. Hea...


Circuit Training Program for Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

Acute Intermittent Hypoxia on Leg Function Following Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this study is to determine how the nervous system controlling leg muscles is altered following spinal cord injury and how they may be affected by brief periods of low oxygen inhalation over time.

Injured Spinal Cord Pressure Evaluation

About a thousand people a year in the United Kingdom survive a spinal cord injury but are left paralysed or wheelchair-bound. The annual cost of care for spinal cord injury victims is more than half a billion pounds. We propose that after spinal cord injury, cord pressure at the injury site rises, damaging the spinal cord further by secondary ischaemia. The value of measuring and reducing cord pressure after spinal cord injury is unknown. The injured spinal cord is compressed ...

Intrathecal Transplantation of UC-MSC in Patients With Sub-Acute Spinal Cord Injury

This study aim to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intrathecal transplantation of allogeneic umbilical cord derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSC) for treatment of different phrases of spinal cord injury. Here, the history of spinal cord injury is divided into three periods, Sub-acute SCI, Early stage of chronic SCI, and Late stage of chronic SCI, which is 2W-2M, 2M-12M, and more than 12M after injury, respectively. The purpose is to investigate whether the patients with sp...

Preventing Pneumonia and Other Respiratory Problems in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

It is known that individuals with spinal cord injury are at increased risk for respiratory tract infections like pneumonia. Part of this risk is due to weakened chest and abdominal muscles that are vital to deep breathing and the ability to cough. The purpose of this study is to look at the effectiveness of two different treatments in preventing pneumonia and other respiratory problems in persons with SCI. This is a randomized controlled trial investigating the effectiveness o...

Hypothermia Following Acute Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this study is to investigate the long term outcome of patients who receive hypothermia treatment for spinal cord injury. At this institution, intravascular hypothermia has been used for certain patients with spinal cord injury for the past two years. This study will collect data from vital signs and examinations while the patient is in the hospital and also when they follow up as an outpatient after they are discharged or go to a rehabilitation center. This data ...

Resolving Grief After Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this study is to examine the usefulness of the Grief Recovery Method in assisting persons with spinal cord injuries to achieve as complete a recovery as possible, thereby allowing for fuller participation in life.

A Holistic Dietary Intervention for Persons With Spinal Cord Injury

People with spinal cord injury are at increased risk for overweight and obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and decreased quality of life compared With able bodied. This pilot aims to assess the impact of a nutrition intervention that combines several methods to help people change their lifestyle. The pilot project combines individual interviews and personal lifestyle goals (diet) with group classes for people with long-standing spinal cord injury. In addi...

Recovery of Walking in Persons With Complete Spinal Cord Injury

We documented the impact of 1 year of underwater treadmill training and supplemental overground walk training in five adults with chronic motor-complete SCI (cSCI) who had not undergone programmed epidural spinal cord stimulation (eSCS).

Development of Low Cost Devices to Increase Access to Treadmill Training

The goals of this Model System Program are to expand upon and advance the findings and outcomes of previous and current Model Systems clinical research, to continue to develop and study the effectiveness of innovative treatment strategies for persons with spinal cord injury (SCI); and to evaluate the benefits of a well-designed, comprehensive, coordinated, interdisciplinary continuum of care that lead to improved outcomes for all persons with SCI. In order to achieve these goal...

Effects of Transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation on Residual Voluntary Motor Control in Individuals With Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury

Recently, a transcutaneous protocol of electrical spinal cord stimulation (tSCS) has been developed. It was suggested, that this method could be used to improve the therapy process after a spinal cord injury (SCI). The aim of this study is to investigate the immediate effects of tSCS with different stimulation modalities on voluntary motor control in patients with incomplete SCI.

Provocative Testing Using LHRH and hCG of the Pituitary-Gonadal Axis in Persons With Spinal Cord Injury.

There is evidence that has shown that serum testosterone levels are low in persons with chronic spinal cord injury (SCI). The question arises as to whether the defect in testosterone production is from the hypothalamic pituitary system (part of the brain that plays a role in testosterone release) or from the male testes. Studies to date are inconclusive. This study, will examine if persons with SCI has a normal hormonal regulation of the male hormone testosterone in comparis...

Feasibility of Exercise and Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of creatine monohydrate or vitamin D supplementation on strength gains following a traditional resistance training program for adults with spinal cord injury.

tSCI Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound Study

Patients with traumatic spinal cord injury (tSCI) often suffer from spinal cord swelling inside the thecal sac, which contains the spinal cord and surrounding fluid, leading to increased pressure on the spinal cord tissue and decreased spinal cord blood flow at the site of injury. The combination of increased pressure and decreased blood flow causes vascular hypo-perfusion of the spinal cord and exacerbates the severity of injury. This is also referred to as secondary injury. T...

Effect of Exercise on Blood Coagulation in Persons With Chronic Spinal Cord Injury

The purpose of this study is to determine if exercise affects the clotting of blood (hemostasis). The effect of exercise on hemostasis will be determined in persons with spinal cord injury, a population reported to have an increased prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD). It is expected that this study will increase our understanding of CVD in persons with SCI, and it will eventually help reduce the occurrence of premature heart disease.

Safety and Efficacy of L-NAME and Midodrine to Increase MAP

After a spinal cord injury the brain is no longer completely in control of the body below the level of injury. This affects many organs and systems in the body, we are interested in understanding how a spinal cord injury affects blood pressure and blood flow to the brain. We are going to study blood pressure while the person is seated in a wheelchair before and after we give the subject medications which should increase blood pressure in a laboratory setting and over the cours...
