The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis was founded in 1985 with the help of Barth A. Green, M.D. and NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti after Nick’s son, Marc, sustained a spinal cord injury during a college football game. The Miami Project is a Center of Excellence at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. It is considered the premier investigative research program conducting cutting edge discovery, translational, and clinical investigations targeting spinal cord and brain injuries. Since its inception, research at The Miami Project has changed the landscape of knowledge and therapeutic strategies for spinal cord and traumatic brain injury.

A Case for Inspiratory Muscle Training in SCI : Potential Role as a Preventative Tool in Infectious Respiratory Diseases Like COVID-19
Manuscript Demonstrates that a Home-Based Respiratory Muscle Training Program Can be Beneficial to Strengthen the Respiratory System to Help Combat COVID-19 and Other Breathing Complications Following SCI
Anne E. Palermo, PT, DPT, Ph.D. Candidate and Staff Physical Therapist, Department of Physical Therapy and The Miami Project, and colleagues, recently published a paper in Spinal Cord Series and Cases that demonstrates the benefits of respiratory muscle training (RMT) in the home setting. The researchers, including Lawrence P. Cahalin, PT, PhD, Professor, Department of Physical Therapy, and Mark S. Nash, PhD, Associate Scientific Director for Research, The Miami Project, reviewed home-based RMT programs completed by individuals with SCI that have been published since January 1, 2019 and incorporated data from a single case study to show the respiratory improvements that are possible for those living with spinal cord injury (SCI). Full story.
