Do you have limited upper extremity function?
We are developing a soft wearable device to assist with motion and function for adults with limited use of one or both hands.
During this research study, you will be asked to assist by providing information about your strength and range of motion, and testing the device components.
One session may last up to 3 hours. You may volunteer to participate in multiple sessions.
You will receive a $50 Amazon© Gift Card per visit. Compensation for travel expenses is also available. Location: Wyss Institute at Harvard University, Longwood Medical Area, Boston MA
