“Intermittent low oxygen therapy (iLOT):

a breath-taking approach to improve function

after spinal cord injury”

 

 

Thursday, October 5, 2017

6:30 PM-8:00 PM

 

presented by:

 

Randy Trumbower, PT, PhD

 

Director, INSPIRE Laboratory

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital,

Harvard Medical School

 

Spinal cord injury (SCI) affects connections between the brain and spinal cord.

One promising technology is through breathing modest bouts of low oxygen—called “intermittent low oxygen therapy” or iLOT.

Recent research has shown that using iLOT, when combined with exercise, stimulates greater recovery than exercise alone.

Combining iLOT with other cutting-edge SCI rehabilitation technologies may result in significant breakthroughs

over the next several years. iLOT may be a “primer” for improving function after SCI.

National SCI Database

The National Spinal Cord Injury Database has been in existence since 1973 and captures data from an estimated 13% of new SCI cases in the U.S.  As part of the SCI Model System, SH-SCI contributes to this database. The NSCISC has recently released 2017 "Facts and Figures" from the National Database.

Knowledge Translation Center

Connect with the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center
The Model System Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) has many resources available about the Spinal Cord Injury Model System, including helpful flyers and handouts about injury - and also the contact information for Model System sites nationwide.

On their website, they  list information for both consumers, and clinicians - including publications from the national sites. The MSKTC can also be found on Blogspot and Facebook.

SCI Resource of the Month

Make texting & websurfing a little easier...

Nothing fancy nor glamorous, a company named "Snake Clamp" makes attachable, adjustable clamps and mounts for using electronic devices, making them usable while in your chair. It could give you that free hand you always need!

Other attachments could perhaps help a quadriplegic mount a camera, a door opener, or provide a stable base for typing on a smart phone, etc. Check it out!! 

Here is the resource page http://snakeclamp.com/Category/ipad-snakeclamp-stand-holder-bracket-mount-flexible-gooseneck-arm . Additional attachment devices can be seen here: http://snakeclamp.com/Category/smartphone-snakeclamp-desk-stand-mount-holder-flexible-goosneck-arm
