Current Studies

Each year, Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana (RHI) conducts numerous clinical and translational research studies in the fields of brain injury, spinal cord injury, and stroke. The groundbreaking research conducted on-site enables RHI to apply scientifically tested, evidence-based research to make patient care better. As a result, our patients benefit from the most cutting edge interventions and therapies that have been proven to get results.

The purpose of this database is to help us better understand the types of changes that occur after brain injury, expectations for recovery and long-term outcomes after brain injury, and how to improve care for people with brain injury.

The purpose of this four-month study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a medication called buspirone in reducing irritability and/or aggression after traumatic brain injury (TBI).

The purpose of this study is to determine how changing different aspects of a walking program can improve walking functioning in participants with acquired brain injury (stroke or traumatic brain injury) who had their injury at least 6 months ago.

The goal of this study is to perform genetic analysis to identify the genetic contributions to TBI outcome.

The purpose of the study is to find out if a remotely delivered educational training program about emotions can help people have better emotional health after a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury.

The purpose of the study is to find out if a new teletherapy program can help individuals with TBI better recognize and respond to others' feelings and improve their relationships.

The objective of this project is to identify the trajectory of neurological and locomotor recovery in patients’ early post-stroke and the biomechanical strategies used by patients to accomplish independent locomotion.

The purpose of this study is to understand the contributions of high intensity training specificity to improve walking in ambulatory individuals who had motor incomplete SCI at least 1 year ago.
