Dataset associated with 'Bimanual Reach to Grasp Movement After Cervical Spinal Cord Injury'

Britten, Laura and Astill, Sarah (2017) Dataset associated with 'Bimanual Reach to Grasp Movement After Cervical Spinal Cord Injury'. University of Leeds. [Dataset] https://doi.org/10.5518/170

Dataset description

Using kinematic analysis and Visual 3D software we calculated temporal and spatial variables regarding how people with a cervical spinal cord injury reach and grasp objects using one hand and two hands simultaneously compared to younger and older adults. Participants with a cSCI produced reach-to-grasp actions which took longer, were slower, and had longer deceleration phases than uninjured participants. These differences were exacerbated during bimanual reach-to-grasp tasks. Maximal grasp aperture was no different between groups, but reached earlier by people with cSCI. Participants with a cSCI were less synchronous than younger and older adults but all groups used the deceleration phase for error correction to end the movement in a synchronous fashion.
