Occupational therapists workshop

Open invitation for occupational therapists

MoreGrasp is an interdisciplinary European research project aiming to restore the grasp pattern in patients with high spinal cord injury. Our international team is developing a grasp neuroprosthesis -with a functional electrical stimulation component- that is controlled through a brain-computer interface.

The final goal is users being able to carry out everyday movements with their hands, after the successful completion of a training period. Naturally a caregiver supporting them throughout their training will greatly improve their chances of success.

To this end we are inviting you in Hamburg to participate in our workshop where we will present the MoreGrasp system and provide hands-on training on all its components, so you can learn how to use the system to help your patients.
