PARTICIPATE IN AN OPEN STUDY AND ADVANCE REHABILITATION SCIENCE.

two students from SPAHP Creighton University participating in research studies

Did you experience a knee injury (ACL, meniscus, arthritis)? Do you have a child with autism spectrum disorders?

We have an immediate need for qualified participants for a number of current studies. Participant criteria and compensation vary depending on the study. Learn more about our current studies below.

Knee Injury Study

We are conducting research to better understand knee injuries and physical therapy interventions to improve function. We examine strength, movement biomechanics and function. We are looking for people 12-65 years old who have had ACL or meniscus injuries, as well as people with knee arthritis. You should not participate in the study if you have a cardiac pacemaker or are pregnant. Qualified participants may receive a stipend of $10 to $125 per study visit.

Healthy Volunteers

We are conducting research to better understand knee injuries and physical performance. We examine strength, movement biomechanics and function. We are looking for healthy people 12-65 years old who do not have a history of knee injury. You should not participate in the study if you have a cardiac pacemaker or are pregnant. Qualified participants may receive a stipend of between $10-125 per study visit.

Early Signs of Autism

We are conducting a study and trying to identify early signs of autism in infants. We are looking for infants that are 4-5 months of age and are typically developing, or they were born prematurely or they have a brother or a sister with autism. We will come to your house 8 times to do evaluations of your baby’s behavior, such as language, movement and social skills. For each visit you will receive a $25 gift card and information about the development of your baby.

See the flier for more details, or contact Anastasia Kyvelidou at anastasiakyvelidou [at] creighton [dot] edu if you would like your baby to participate.

Sensory interaction and posture in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

We are conducting a study and trying to identify the contribution of sensory information on balance of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and children with typical development. We are looking for children 4-16 years of age.

See the flier for more details or contact Anastasia Kyvelidou at anastasiakyvelidou [at] creighton [dot] edu if you would like your child to participate.
