About this trial

This trial is recruiting people with chronic cervical (neck area) spinal cord injuries to test the benefits of a brain/neural hand exoskeleton (B/NHE) on hand function. B/NHE uses a computer connected to electrodes placed on the scalp surface to measure electrical brain activity (electroencephalography-EEG) and to track eye movements (electrooculography-EOG). The EEG/EOG signals are configured to control an externally worn powered robotic device (exoskeleton) to assist with useful hand movements. Participants will be connected to the B/NHE system and will undergo several activities of daily living over a number of sessions.
