Effects of novel light therapy in individuals with TBI

Effects of novel light therapy in individuals with TBI

Edith Cowan University is currently recruiting participants aged 18-85 with a confirmed TBI diagnosis, at least 3 months post injury, who are experiencing fatigue. Please see participant information sheet below to determine if you qualify for this research project.

What is this research project about? This research project is investigating the impact of light therapy on fatigue, quality of life and occupational outcomes in people following a TBI.

What is the purpose of this research? This research project will assess the effects of light therapy with sleep hygiene guidelines alone, on fatigue, sleep, work and quality of life outcomes in people at least three months post-TBI. Studies have shown that light therapy can reduce feelings of fatigue and sleepiness in people with a range of neurological conditions, including TBI. Here, we aim to assess the effects of light therapy on fatigue and sleepiness as well as work productivity, performance of daily activities and quality of life in people following a TBI.

What does my participation involve? A range of various assessments. Participants will be randomised to morning light therapy glasses and sleep health guidance vs sleep health guidance alone. Please see participant inflammation sheet below for complete detail.

Do I need to attend in person or can I participate remotely? This study and participation is delivered remotely, so is suitable for people living in metropolitan, regional and remote areas within Australia.

Who do I contact for further information? ECU Research fellow Travis Cruickshank via email or phone 08 6304 3416.
