Have you recently sustained a Head Injury?
Would you like to take part in a Research Study?
Simon Fraser University is looking for volunteers to take part in a research study looking at changes in the cardiovascular system and postural instability in individuals with a recent head injury or with post-concussion syndrome.
Concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of head injury that commonly results in symptoms including headache, loss of balance (postural instability), and impaired concentration, among others. These symptoms may resolve within a few days or may persist for weeks. This can lead to lost work, school, and/or sport participation time. Returning to work, school, or sports too quickly can lead to an exacerbation of symptoms or risk of sustaining a second concussion. This study will be investigating the relationship between the cardiovascular system and postural instability in individuals with a head injury.
The time commitment is a few hours on two occasions a couple of days apart. Please respond by early June 2011 to participate in the Study.
If you are 19 years of age or older, recently sustained a head injury, are still symptomatic, and interested in taking part in this study, please contact Michelle Bruner or Dr. Andrew Blaber for more details.
NeuroKinetics is a collaborator in this study.
