Article
Purpose: Determine how mobility changes over 6 months in people unable to walk at 8-weeks post-Acquired Brain Injury (ABI); if there is an association over time between postural alignment and mobility post-ABI; and if alignment after ABI becomes closer to healthy alignment over time. Methods: Fourteen adults with ABI, evaluated over 6 months, an...
Article
Objectives: 1) Understand the experience, and personal significance, of mobility skills for people with severe mobility impairment after brain injury 2) Determine how these evolve over time. Design: Longitudinal qualitative study. Participants: Ten adults, unable to walk at 8 weeks post-injury. Methods: Participants were interviewed up to th...

Project
Objectives are to determine: 1. Whether physical activity levels differ between settings (acute hospital, inpatient rehab, home, care facility) 2. If activity levels are associated with mobility outcomes 3. If activity levels or mobility are associated with quality of life 4. How costs of care vary with levels of mobility impairment 5. Perceived factors that may increase or decrease activity levels for people who are non-ambulant at one month post-ABI 6. Access to rehabilitation and factors influencing rehabilitation triage
Project
Aims: 1. Describe the clinical pathway within an inter-disciplinary rehabilitation service for adults with mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) 2. Describe multi-disciplinary clinical practice delivered by a mTBI rehabilitation team 3. Describe the core principles of care and learnings from the mTBI rehabilitation program
Project
To explore the experience, and personal significance, of mobility skills for adults who were not walking 8 weeks following acquired brain injury. Data drawn from 10 participants each completing 1-3 semi-structured interviews over 6 months.
