About this trial

This trial is enrolling individuals with chronic incomplete cervical spinal cord injuries to test the effect of robotic rehabilitation training on arm/hand function. If included, participants will receive 30 min sessions of assisted rehabilitation training of the upper limbs with an AMADEO, PABLO and/or DIEGO device (Tyromotion), 3 times per week, for 6 weeks. This is a cross-over study, which means one group of participants will start the 6 week rehabilitation program while the other part of the participants continue their normal lives. The first period is followed by 4-week wash-out period. In the second period, roles of the participants will be switched. Changes in arm and hand function will be measured.
