The purpose of this study is to evaluate in-laboratory mobility outcomes, pain perception, and user satisfaction with the Keeogo , a robotic exoskeleton for providing assistance on knees during stand and swing for a population with impaired mobility, as compare with standard knee braces. The investigators hypothesize that participants could have improved performance outcomes on walk test, timed up and go test, stair test, pick up penny from floor test, and the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) when using the Keeogo as compared with their prescribed knee braces.
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is one of the most common and disabling conditions among Veterans. Management of KOA is challenging as there are few effective treatments other than joint replacement. Importantly, low levels of physical activity in patients with knee problems might worsen pain and disability. This study aims to determine the feasibility of using methods to change behavior that use social incentives and promote physical activity through playing games and interacting with a web-based platform. The study will also evaluate an important and widely used treatment, namely corticosteroid injections. Participants will be randomized...
The purpose of the Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to apremilast and to evaluate the safety of this medication relative to specified pregnancy outcomes, and to evaluate potential effects of prenatal apremilast exposure on infant health status through one year of age.
Anterior vertebral body tethering (AVBT) is a novel, minimally invasive, growth modulation technique that was recently approved by the FDA under a Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE). The goal of AVBT is to control curve progression by applying compression on the convex side of the spine deformity. While there has been great initial enthusiasm about the technique as an alternate treatment option to spinal fusion for skeletally immature children with scoliosis, there is a need to better understand the long-term outcomes. The purpose of this study is to report the long-term clinical outcomes of skeletally immature patients treated...
Post-market prospective, multi-center longitudinal study to determine if mobile application-guided education and exercise paired with accurate and sensitive activity monitoring, captured from consumer wearables, can provide a viable (and potentially improved) alternative to current standard of care physical therapy for hip and knee arthroplasty.
This is a prospective multicenter study located in the United States. Subjects will be implanted with an iTotal Identity Knee Replacement System and followed for 10 years post implantation.
This study aims to see if outcomes for patients that receive the traditional total knee replacement surgical technique are different than the outcomes for patients that receive robot-assisted total knee replacement. The outcomes we will be tracking include: 1. Patients' self-reported awareness of their artificial joints during activities of daily living; 2. Patient's self-reported pain, other symptoms, function in daily living, function in sport and recreation, and knee-related quality of life; 3. Patients' self-reported general health perceptions, physical functioning, role limitations due to...
This is a prospective clinical study designed to observe the long-term clinical outcomes of total knee arthroplasty using a patient-specific, posterior stabilized implant in patients with osteoarthritis.
Multi-center sequential multiple assignment randomized trial comparing the effectiveness of three different standard of care treatment options for patients with isolated skin vasculitis.
The primary purpose of this study was to determine if cannabinoid use decreases narcotic consumption in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
