Restoration of Reaching and Grasping Function in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury Using MyndMove® Neuromodulation Therapy
The goal of this trial is to determine if a non-invasive muscle stimulation therapy is as good as or better than standard therapy aimed at improving arm and hand function following a cervical spinal cord injury (SCI).
About This Study
The study will compare electrical neuromodulation delivered by MyndMove® therapy to intensive upper-limb conventional therapy in the treatment of individuals with moderate to severe motor impairment to their arms and hands from an incomplete, traumatic SCI.
To compare the efficacy of MyndMove® therapy vs intensive conventional therapy in improving upper extremity function the study will utilize standard outcome measure testing.
- Spinal Cord Independence Measure self-care sub score (SCIM-SC)
- Graded Refined Assessment of Strength Sensibility and Prehension (GRASSP)
- Toronto Rehab Institute Hand Function Test (TRI-HFT)
- Spinal Cord Injury-Quality of Life (SCI-QOL)
