Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have been studying traumatic brain injury (TBI) and contributing to the field for more than two decades. Our collaboration with other leading TBI researchers has led to better care and outcomes for patients with traumatic brain injury.
The Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems
Ohio State’s Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Program is one of only 16 model systems for traumatic brain injury in the United States. This research program is the largest longitudinal study in the world examining the lifelong effects of severe TBI. Funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, the TBI Model Systems Program has been helping TBI patients, their families and their communities since 1987.
TBI Model Systems Collaborative Research Grant on Practice-Based Evidence
This research project is studying individual differences in demographic characteristics, injury-related conditions and medical treatment that predict the effectiveness of rehabilitation treatment on a patient’s functional independence, participation and well-being up to one year after traumatic brain injury.
