that's a great study, you are involved with. your time is well spent to be able to try something that might help many other survivors. your results do matter. I wish you the best and I'm hoping the robotic arm. works for you to get function back. would'nt that be a great outcome, you got to try the bioness system to help you walk again and it worked for you. keep us updated on your progress. NEVER GIVE UP HOPE.
