Thirteen participants with cervical SCI used a soft robotic glove in a variety of tests compared to their baseline function. Results included a 50% improvement on the Jebsen-Taylor Hand Function Test from baseline to glove trial and significant increases in grasp and pinch forces with the active glove. The glove was controlled by the participants with an external button pushed by the nontested hand. In the future, this device could be portable and used in the home or community.
