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.

Study Information

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)
