Mobility Limitation clinical trials at University of California Health
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
Using Kinect Motion Capture to Measure Shoulder Motion for Capsular Distension in Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This study will compare shoulder range of motion assessment using the Kinect motion tracking system vs goniometer in patients with adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) undergoing ultrasound-guided capsular distention procedures (standard of care). The investigators hypothesize that, for shoulder adhesive capsulitis, the Kinect Motion Analysis 2.0 system will provide reliable results in a shorter and more efficient amount of time in comparison to traditional goniometer methods.

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether Lofstrand or axillary crutches are better suited to treat mobility impairments and improve physical activity levels in rural, resource-limited, settings like the Northern Region of Malawi. To do this, we are proposing the implementation of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) to measure and compare the physical activity and satisfaction of mobility aid recipients sorted into two groups - one receiving a set of Lofstrand crutches (Group 1) and the other a set of axillary crutches (Group 2). Changes in physical activity, disability, and life satisfaction levels will measured with a follow-up data collection period conducted one year after the distribution of the devices.
