The research of Ryan J. Solinsky, M.D., centers on characterizing deficits in the autonomic nervous system and better understanding how these deficits impact clinical presentations. His previous work showed significant autonomic nervous system dysfunction in individuals with spinal cord injury. Dr. Solinsky is currently conducting clinical trials on how to improve autonomic nervous system regulation for these individuals with paralysis.
Dr. Solinsky's work is aimed at improving treatment outcomes and enhancing the quality of life for individuals with spinal cord injury. By characterizing deficits in the autonomic nervous system and better understanding how these deficits impact clinical presentations, Dr. Solinsky's research informs the development of more-effective treatments for individuals with spinal cord injury. In particular, his work on autonomic dysreflexia has led to the development of a protocol for the treatment of this serious condition that is over 97% effective. Additionally, Dr. Solinsky's collaboration with engineering teams has led to the development of innovative neuroprostheses, such as the soft-robotic exoskeleton glove, that improve functional tasks for individuals with quadriplegia from spinal cord injury.
