Funding awarded to optimise technology interventions

A project aiming for a personalised approach to the restoration of arm function in people with high-level spinal cord injury has been awarded £387k of funding by the EPSRC.

The project, led by Dr Ed Chadwick of ISTM, will focus on developing new methods to optimise technology interventions such as functional electrical stimulation, to enable people with paralysis of their arms to move again.
