The purpose of this cross-sectional, descriptive pilot study is to generate hypotheses for subsequent studies by exploring the following aims: (1) describe nighttime rest-activity variables--wake bouts (counts), total wake time (minutes), and sleep efficiency (percentage; time asleep/time in bed)--in people hospitalized on a neuroscience step-down unit after a moderate or severe TBI and (2) describe the association between this same sample's injury and nighttime rest-activity on functional outcome (outcome/ dependent variable) (measured at discharge from inpatient care).
