Details and patient eligibility

About

To investigate long term affects of multiple concussions on the cognition, balance, proprioception, and biomarkers in retired National Hockey League players

Full description

This research study will collect data for each subject in one single visit. During the visit the subject will be asked to consent to the study which is estimated to take approximately 10 minutes. A medical history will be obtained, taking approximately 15 minutes. Blood, urine, and cheek swabs will be collected for approximately 15 minutes. The PHQ-9, Becks Depression Inventory, Connors Adult ADHD Rating Scale (CAARS™), and Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) will be administered, these assessments combined are estimated to take 50 minutes. Lastly, patients will be asked to complete a Sensory Organization Test (SOT) which takes approximately 15 minutes. There are only licensed health professionals working on this project that will respect your privacy and conduct this trial following all HIPPA and clinical research guidelines.
