A Device for Rapid, Painless, Bedside Muscle Evaluation of Children
study id #: NCT02340923
condition: Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
The purpose of this protocol is to perform Electrical Impedance Myography (EIM) testing on healthy children and children with duchenne muscular dystrophy so as to develop a new, convenient tool for the office based assessment of children with a wide variety of neuromuscular conditions.
mechanism of action: No pharmaceutical intervention
last updated: November 22, 2018
start date: January 2015
estimated completion: June 2016
size / enrollment: 327
- Electrical Impedance Myography Measurements [ Time Frame: Baseline (all subjects) & 3 months, 6 months, 1 year for returning subjects only ]
Up to 11 muscles will be measured using EIM technology. These muscles include: Right Lateral Deltoid, Right Biceps, Right Triceps, Right Wrist Flexors, Right Wrist Extensors, Right Vastus Lateralis, Right Tibialis Anterior, Right Gastrocnemius, Right Gluteus Medius, Right Biceps Femoris, and Right Thoracic Parapinal.
