Abstract

The aim of the MoreGrasp project is to develop a non-invasive, multimodal user interface including a brain-computer interface (BCI) for control of a grasp neuroprostheses in individuals with high spinal cord injury (SCI). The first results of the ongoing MoreGrasp clinical feasibility study involving end users with SCI are presented. This includes BCI screening sessions, in which we investigate the electroencephalography (EEG) patterns associated with single, natural movements of the upper limb. These patterns will later be used to control the neuroprosthesis. Additionally, the MoreGrasp grasp neuroprosthesis consisting of electrode arrays embedded in an individualized textile forearm sleeve is presented. The general feasibility of this electrode array in terms of corrections of misalignments during donning is shown together with the functional results in end users of the electrode forearm sleeve
