The Human Spinal Cord Injury Repair Laboratory at Burke Medical Research Institute is currently looking for participants with tetraplegia after spinal cord injury for a clinical research study.
Neuropathic pain is a very disabling clinical condition that affects 40 to 70% of people with spinal cord injury. Many spinal cord injury treatment options are available; however, today’s treatments offer limited results, often leaving people with a reduced quality of life.
This study will investigate the effects of two different immersive virtual reality (IVR) protocols in neuropathic pain. Participants will be asked to attend the lab in two occasions for an IVR experience. Clinical and functional scales and questionnaires will be collected before and after the IVR protocol.
