The goals of this project are to establish project infrastructure and regulatory approvals, compare POWAR-TOTAL performance in healthy controls n60 to those with concussion n100recruiting from Fort Bragg and Madigan Army Medical Center MAMC, and examine how POWARTOTAL scores change with rehabilitation recovery for those with concussion. We had inordinate delays in regulatory approval at both sites, beginning data collection at Fort Bragg in May of 2018. MAMC is still not approved. We have collected data on 3060 healthy control participants and 650 individuals with mTBI using the POWAR-TOTAL, 2 pre- post-test. We have completed all infrastructure tasks that we have control over procedures, personnel, equipment, training, database establishment, FITBIR, but are limited by software glitches in the eIRB system that continue to delay MAMC approval. We are implementing additional recruitment strategies at Ft Bragg given mTBI reenrollment has been slower than planned. We will likely require a no cost extension to successfully complete the project given the regulatory delays.
