Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center is the clinical site for a 2 year Michigan State University research study. Funding for the $150,000 study was received through a grant by the American Osteopathic Association and AT Still Foundation. The Effect of Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) on Functional Outcomes and Anti-inflammatory Biomarkers in Mild- to Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury is led by primary investigator and Origami Medical Director, Rebecca Wyatt, DO.

Data collection will begin in September 2017 with plans for it to include 200 cases. Wyatt stated, “The impact of our proposed research lies in our attempt to establish a foundation for the basis of using OMT procedures to accelerate recovery of patients following mild to moderate brain injury and to find correlations between cognitive functions, biochemical markers, and self-reported assessments of quality of life.”

Origami is a nonprofit organization located in Mason, just outside of Lansing. The facility offers a continuum of care for individuals who have sustained a brain injury, from residential to community-based and outpatient programs with the resources available to return people to productive and active lives. Origami operates in partnership with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Peckham, Inc. With the support of these partners, Origami generates excellent clinical outcomes with cost effective management and remains on the cutting edge of brain injury rehabilitation.
