Kessler and BrainQ partner on a national trial of breakthrough device to improve recovery after stroke

Sun, 11/20/2022 - 12:15
Researchers from Kessler Foundation and Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation (collectively "Kessler") are enrolling participants in a national trial of a breakthrough device for improving recovery after stroke. Kessler locations in West Orange and Saddle Brook, NJ, are among the 20 sites across the U.S. participating in the EMAGINE Stroke Recovery Trial, which pairs therapeutic exercise with stimulation of the brain through an investigational wearable device.

Type 2 diabetes patients older than 45 have increased MS risk after anti-hyperglycemic exposure

Sun, 11/20/2022 - 12:10
A new University of Arizona Health Sciences study found that people older than 45 whose Type 2 diabetes was treated with anti-hyperglycemic medications had an increased risk of multiple sclerosis, particularly among women, while anti-hyperglycemic exposure in people younger than 45 reduced that risk.

UH researcher aims to find causal pathways to developmental disabilities among children in rural Zambia

Sun, 11/20/2022 - 11:54
Of the 2.6 billion children in the world, 11% or 291.2 million are estimated to have one of four developmental disabilities – epilepsy, intellectual disability, vision loss and hearing loss. Ninety-five percent of these children live in low- and middle-income countries, predominantly in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, according to recent estimates.
