AbstractA new myoelectric hand orthosis, primarily for the spinal cord injury patients, at the C5–6 level, is developed. The device, weighing only 500 grams, operates proportionally to the bioelectric potentials picked-up by the surface electrodes. The device offers compatibility with the daily activities of the user without interference and can be donned and doffed independently.
