    This is the system I am familiar with. (moving this to the Equipment forum):

    Implanted systems have also been used in the past, but there were many problems with infected and broken wires and I am not sure if anyone is doing that anymore.

    We have used them with several clients. It does take an evaluation with an experienced OT and a period of training in how to make it work right for you.

    Make the best out of today because yesterday is gone and tomorrow may never come. Nobody knows that better than those of us that have almost died from spinal cord injury.

    Is this something you wear like a brace? Or it improves hand to operate alone?
