This study is designed to assess effectiveness, safety and cost-utility of conventional
rehabilitation and traditional Korean medicine conjugated rehabilitation on children with
Investigators will use a stationary bike protocol to investigate whether patients with post
concussion syndrome benefit from adding exertion training to a vestibular rehabilitation
Investigators examine the effect of aerobic exercise testing and training on individuals
with concussion who are currently experiencing symptoms and examine the effect of aerobic
exercise in combination with traditional vestibular rehabilitation.
Complex project of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with Western Medicine (WM) project

and secondary prevention of ischemic stroke is same or better than that of WM.
Normally, nerve fibers carry electrical impulses through the spinal cord, providing
communication between the brain and the arms and legs. In people with spinal cord injury,
some fibers may be destroyed at the site of injury, while others remain connected but do not
work correctly to carry electrical impulses. As a result, subjects with an incomplete spinal
cord injury may have spasticity which is muscle spasms or muscle stiffness that makes
movement ... Read More
This study is designed to investigate the effect of a structured resistance training program
on glycemic control, measured by hemoglobin A1c (glycated hemoglobin), in patients with type
2 diabetes (T2DM) who are enrolled in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. The investigator
will compare the experimental group receiving resistance training to a control group made of
patients enrolled in outpatient cardiac rehabilitation and perform 3 aerobic exercise

The primary function of the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine (RMD) is to diagnose and
treat patients at the NIH who have problems in locomotion, activities of daily living,
occupational roles, communication, swallowing, or problems with chronic pain. The major goal
of this department s to help patients achieve maximal function so that they can resume their
daily living activities as normal as possible.
In order for the department to accomplish it's ... Read More

The purpose of this study is to determine whether wheelchair handrail compensator plus
rehabilitation training could do better than ordinary wheelchair plus rehabilitation
training in relieving pain and improving daily life activity, upper limb motor function and
quality of life for patients with hemiplegic shoulder pain.
The AMES device is designed to produce functional cortical changes by:(1) assisting the
subject as he/she attempts to move the limb (assisted movement) and (2) enhancing movement
sensation by vibrating the muscles during movement (enhanced sensation). The primary
hypothesis is that the combination of assisted movement and enhanced sensation from muscle
vibration can increase the amount of motor recovery in individuals disabled by a stroke.

The amount of activity completed by individuals within rehabilitation programs, even when
units are well staffed, is often far below that required for optimal stroke rehabilitation,
and is not individually adapted on a day-to-day basis. Daily feedback on their activity
levels may motivate stroke survivors to engage in greater skills practice and thus outcome
after stroke. To date only a few trials suggests that augmented feedback may be effective.
There is a ... Read More

The objective of this proposed study is to determine whether acupuncture combined with
rehabilitation treatment could improve significantly motor function in ischemic stroke
patients. In this 8-week, assessor-blind, a Multi-center randomized, controlled study of
acupuncture as additional treatment with the rehabilitation treatment, a total of 240
patients with stroke patients will be recruited. The patients will be randomly assigned to
acupuncture combined ... Read More
Stroke is the most serious disabling condition in the United States and the developed world.
Novel stroke rehabilitation approaches, such as task-specific training, have shown promise
in improving an individual's recovery in the rehabilitation setting; however, evidence
suggests that these improvements are not generalized or transferred to the home, community,
or work settings. Thus, these interventions usually do not impact overall health and
participation ... Read More
Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) may benefit from an 8-week
pulmonary rehabilitation programme. However, the effect of the programme tends to attenuate
with time. Patients who complete the programme are randomized to continued rehabilitation
follow-up and control follow-up.
This study will develop and test a new program of enhanced medical rehabilitation for
elderly people who have had an acute disabling medical event and are admitted to a skilled
nursing facility for post-acute rehabilitation.
Stroke is one of the most serious, disabling health conditions in the United States.
Patients who undergo rehabilitation treatment for stroke have a high rate of disability.
Poor outcomes for many persons with stroke may be low because of incomplete treatment. The
investigators will conduct a randomized controlled trial and a process evaluation to examine
the feasibility, safety, and preliminary efficacy of an enhanced rehabilitation transition
program, ... Read More
