Training in Infants with Neonatal Stroke (TINS) Project

Jill Heathcock, MPT, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Division of Physical Therapy at The Ohio State University, is recruiting participants for the Training in Infants with Neonatal Stroke (TINS) Project.  The Investigators are interested in understanding how motor skills, like reaching and walking, emerge from spontaneous movements, such as flapping of the arms and kicking of the legs.  The TINS project will look at arm movements.  Results of this study may help provide information that can be used in intervention programs for babies and children with motor dysfunction.

They are currently recruiting babies to start the project at 2 months of age; however, they will accept babies under 6 months.  Infants with focal or diffuse stroke are eligible for the project. Infants who show any signs of hemiparesis are also eligible for the project.  Babies must be born greater than 34 weeks of gestational age.
