Abstract:

This pilot investigation has been initiated and all study staff members have received full training for the collection of unique outcome measures and providing unique rehabilitation and assistance using a novel robotic exoskeleton orthosis MyoMo device for persons with SCI. We researcher, clinicians and therapists, with assistance from the manufacturer MyoMo have established a training program schedule on the utilization of MyoMo orthosis specifically for individuals with SCI which will is followed during enrollment in this research study. We have able to get some preliminary data that is included in this report and this data has been used to submit a Level II to the CDMRP-OPORP to include a wider range of utilization with a larger number of participants.
