Healthy Volunteers OR People with a History of Head Injury Needed for Study
Assessment of vestibular impairment in individuals with a history of impact brain injury and non-impact blast eposure.
We are looking for adults ages 18-40 for this study. We are looking for people in general good health and also people who have had a history of blast exposure and blunt head trauma. The purpose of this study is to learn more about balance in people with a history of blast exposure and blunt head trauma compared to healthy people. You will participate in this study for one session that lasts about 3 hours. During the study you will complete balance, vision, and stability tests in our lab. Study visit takes place in the Department of Rehabilitation Science lab at UB's South Campus. Participants will be compensated.
Previous studies have attempted to compare blast and nonblast TI outcomes, with evaluations based largely on self-reporting, retrospective medical record review, and later stages after injury. Findings from previous investigations comparing patients with blast vs nonblast TI have produced diverse results. Specifically, similarities in blast versus nonblast TI have been observed
-Adults ages 18-40.
-Generally healthy OR have had a history of impact brain injury/head trauma in past ten years.
Age Group: Adults
