Clinical Evaluation of a Wheelchair Mounted Robotic Arm
Clinical Evaluation of a Wheelchair Mounted Robotic Arm

The primary purpose of this project, is to evaluate the effect of a wheelchair mounted robotic arm (WMRA) to improve the functional independence of veterans with SCI.

The study will determine if the ability to perform marker tasks within the following four categories is improved after the 4 week training period using the robotic arm:

1. activities of daily living, 2. vocational tasks, 3. advanced tasks, and subject-specific tasks.

1. activities of daily living, 2. vocational tasks, 3. advanced tasks, and subject-specific tasks.

The secondary purposes of this project are the following: 1.Does quality of life (life satisfaction and health status) improve after a 4 week period of using the WMRA? 2. What are the perceived advantages of the WMRA to the veteran with SCI? Additionally, the study will evaluate the following: 1) ease of installation and usefulness of instructional manuals; 2) training requirements (time, tasks); 3) safety features; 4) reliability of the device; 5) home, community, and vocational applications; 6) user acceptability; 7) maintenance/ service; 8) portability; and possible modifications.
