Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to develop and test the hardware and software components of the MyHand-SCI device to assist with hand function for individuals with C6-C7 spinal cord injury.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spinal Cord Injuries Tetraplegia Device: Testing of MyHand-SCI Device Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to develop and test the hardware and software components of the MyHand-SCI device to assist with hand function for individuals with C6-C7 spinal cord injury. This is a non-randomized exploratory study to determine feasibility of device use, provide user feedback on device features and function to allow further refinement of the device, and assess the utility and responsiveness of several clinical outcome measures.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MyHand-SCI Device Testing
Subjects will attend 1-20 sessions (of approximately 90 mins) to trial a variety of the MyHand-SCI device controls and/or components. Participants will practice various grasp and release activities with the device
Device: Testing of MyHand-SCI Device
Subjects will attend 1-20 sessions (approximately 90 minutes) to trial the MyHand-SCI device, including a variety of controls and components.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. System Usability Scale [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years at study completion ]
    The System Usability Scale (SUS) is a reliable tool for measuring the usability of products, including medical devices. It consists of a 10 item questionnaire with five response options (Strongly agree to Strongly disagree).
