The Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is conducting a research study that will help us determine the most effective ways to evaluate swallowing impairments in persons with cervical spinal cord injury.
The study involves an evaluation of your ability to swallow your saliva and small amounts of water during an evaluation with a speech-language pathologist. If you should qualify, you may choose to participate in two evaluations separated by four weeks.
Who Can Participate
Inpatient adults, 18 years or older, with a Swallowing impairment as the result of a traumatic cervical spinal cord injury within the last year
Age Range 18 years or older
