Use FES for a grip for people with SCI!
Hmm, this is older, so why isN'T it pushed? Scott.

Functional Control of the Hand in Tetraplegics Based on Residual Synergistic EMG Activity

A microprocessor controlled device (MeCFES) was used for the investigation of the possibility of restoring hand function in C5 tetraplegics with paralysis of the hand. To date, 3 tetraplegics have been testing the system. The myoelectric signals from wrist extension were recorded and used as control signals for functional electrical stimulation (FES) of thumb adduction/flexion. The results have shown that the device can improve the hand function of tetraplegics. In this part of the work, a hand function test was designed and used to assess the results.
