Our aim is to help children, youth, and adults with upper limb differences

Using a youth engagement framework, our research focuses on evaluating and understanding the physical, mental, and social determinants of participation in individuals with upper limb musculoskeletal conditions.

BRACHIAL PLEXUS BIRTH INJURY: ELBOW CONTRACTURES

Elbow contractures are a common sequelae of brachial plexus birth injury (BPBI). The aim of this research is to identify the prevalence and musculoskeletal characteristics (e.g, muscle strength, muscle length, joint morphology using U/S) of elbow flexion contractures in infants and children with BPBI to determine the associated patient-, and diagnosis- specific predictors of contracture development and severity. This study will improve the clinical decision making for timely rehabilitation and surgical management of these contractures.
