Effects of position on awareness in disorders of consciousness

A single-case experimental design study to investigate differences in awareness levels in individual patients with impaired consciousness measured in three positions: lying, sitting and standing on a tilt-table?
Clinicians are under increasing pressure to justify selection of resource-intensive tilt-table therapy in the absence of compelling evidence to support its use for physical benefits. The methodology may provide a framework for supporting identification of ‘responders’ to standing therapy, while determining the optimal position for assessment of awareness for individual patients.
