Abstract

Individuals with high level spinal cord injury retain little or no voluntary control over the arm musculature, limiting their ability to perform activities of daily living. The feasibility of restoring shoulder function for an individual with C3 tetraplegia is evaluated with the use of a musculoskeletal model.
