Our current studies focus on improving daily life for individuals who have experienced Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, and Neuropathic Pain. Our approach and most of our studies entail non-invasive stimulation paired with therapy to improve motor performance.
Now enrolling -TRANScranial Direct Current Stimulation for Post-stroke Motor Recovery A Phase II Study (TRANSPORT2)
Part of a National Institutes of Health StrokeNet multicenter trial, this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and feasibility of different doses of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in people 30-180 days after their first ever stroke. This study combines tDCS with intensive therapy of the affected arm and hand.
Now enrolling - Improving Hand Recovery with Neuromodulation In Tetraplegia (IGNITE)
This study will investigate transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), paired with intensive therapy of the arm and hand, to determine if upper extremity function can be improved in individuals with incomplete tetraplegia at least 1 year post-injury. Participants will be assigned to receive tDCS at 1 of 2 different intensity levels.
Now enrolling - Modulating Neuropathic Pain with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
The goal of this project is to determine whether transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can be used to decrease pain and related symptoms in people with neuropathic pain; either complex regional pain syndrome, phantom limb pain, or neuropathic pain after spinal cord injury.
Now enrolling - Game Training in Acquired Brain Injury
This study investigates the effects of game training with mixed reality (a new gaming platform) on cognitive performance in patients who have suffered an acquired brain injury. A pre-training, tablet based, cognitive assessment will take 45-60 minutes and then over the next several weeks a total of 8 hours of game training will be completed. A post-training assessment will take place no less than 24 hours after the final game training session.
