About this trial

This trial is recruiting individuals with incomplete cervical (neck area) spinal cord injuries to test the use of a functional electrical stimulation (FES) device called MyndMove®. Electrodes are placed on the skin to contract muscles. Researchers want to see if this treatment can help improve the function of arms and hands. The FES will target specific muscles used for activities of daily living (e.g. grasping or pinching objects). Participants will be randomized to receive either 1) FES with the MyndMove device, or 2) conventional therapy with manual assistance by a therapist.
