About this trial

This trial is enrolling individuals with chronic cervical spinal cord injuries to test the effect of multiple immersive man-machine interfaces on arm and hand function. The interventions include 1) Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), 2) wearable robotics, and 3) augmented (virtual) reality. BCI is a technique using a computer and connected electrodes on the scalp to record brain activity in order to control an external device, e.g. a robotic arm. Augmented reality is a computer generated experience of visual displays that are similar to the real world, through head-mounted displays such as smart-glasses. If included, participants will undergo 3 BCI sessions and 10 augmented reality sessions. Final testing will be performed after 3 months.
