Assessment of Candidates and Design Considerations for Neuroprosthetic Devices for Individuals with Chronic Spinal Cord Injury


The primary purpose of this study is to perform initial screening and preliminary testing to determine the ideal characteristics of potential candidates for a neuroprosthetic device that would restore arm and hand movement. Neuroprosthetics are devices that are designed to substitute a movement or sensation that may have been lost as a result of damage to the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, nerves).
