  • 4DCT Imaging for Improved Diagnosis and Treatment of Wrist Ligament Injuries (4DCT) Rochester, Minn.

    The study seeks to determine whether the 4DCT imaging technique can be used to replace current invasive diagnostic tests for ligament injuries of the wrist.

  • 4DCT Wrist Biomarkers During Resisted and Unresisted Tasks in Healthy Controls Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to assess healthy controls without any history of wrist injury or diseases by using 4DCT scanning during wrist movement to characterize gapping at the scapholunate, radiolunate, and radioscaphoid joints, as well as the scaphotrapeziotrapezoid (STT) joint.  This will test the hypotheses that scapholunate and STT gapping distances and bilateral asymmetry will be greater in the resisted tasks as compared to the unresisted tasks in both male and female subjects, and that gapping in females will be greater than in males.

  • A Pilot Study to Compare Short-Term Transcutaneous or Epidural Spinal Stimulation for Enabling Motor Function in Humans with Spinal Cord Injury Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to compare transcutaneous electrical spinal stimulation and epidural electrical spinal stimulation.  Relationships between stimulation input and electrophysiological output will be recorded, and changes in motor, sensory, and functional outcomes during and after stimulation will be assessed.

  • Epidural Spinal Stimulation User Experience Survey for Individuals with Paralysis Due to Spinal Cord Injury Rochester, Minn.

    This is a survey study to identify user-reported motor, sensory, and autonomic functions that are enabled by epidural stimulation, establish correlations between epidural stimulation usage, rehabilitation, functional gains, and user experience in the laboratory and community settings, and to understand and identify subjective goals, benefits, and barriers that still exist with implanted epidural stimulator community.

  • Mayo Clinic Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Rehabilitation Research Registry Rochester, Minn.

    This will be a prospective registry conducted and maintained at Mayo Clinic Rochester from which collaborating sites within Mayo, Mayo Health Systems, and other spinal cord injury centers can draw from in order to fulfill research enrollment. The information collected for this registry will be used for recruitment purposes only, and will not be used as research data. Participants who are recruited to participate in other research studies will need to complete a separate consenting/enrollment process specific to that study.


  • Minnesota Spinal Cord Injury Data Network Rochester, Minn.

    This is a study to generate feasibilty data regarding the collection of health and psychosocial outcomes after acquired spinal cord injury (SCI)

  • Normative Biomechanical Measures of Reaching in Able-Bodied Adults Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to obtain normative values and repeatability measures during functional reaching tasks in able-bodied individuals with no functional limitations. The data collected may be used in the future as baseline reference and repeatability values of outcome measures against which to compare values from individuals with functional limitations to quantify their functional ability.
