The proposed Regenerative Rehabilitation based study seeks to optimize a rehabilitation protocol such that the ability of a regenerative therapy to create more functional skeletal muscle tissue is increased. We hypothesize that rehabilitative exercises will promote improvements in the overall strength of the injured muscle. As such, this research represents a significant advancement in the understanding of this underrepresented component of care for severe extremity trauma. Ifwhen successful, the knowledge developed is primed to transition into clinical practice and may prove to be pivotal to achievement of clinically meaningful regenerative and functional outcomes for Wounded Warriors.
