The surgical procedures are described in the section Detailed description
- Cylinder test [ Time Frame: 5 minutes ]This test is developed at SUH and currently under reliability testing. The cylinder test assesses the patients' ability to actively grasp and release glass cylinders of varying breadth, ranging from 10 to 150 mm.
- Grip ability as measured using the Grasp and Release Test (GRT) [ Time Frame: 20 minutes ]GRT assesses the ability to pick up, move, and release six objects of varying sizes, weights and textures using a palmar or lateral grasp. Each object represents one or more objects routinely manipulated for activities of daily living (ADL) that represented a range of difficulties.
- Grip strength will be measured with JAMAR dynamometer [ Time Frame: 2 minutes ]
- Pinch grip strength will be assessed using the Pinch Gauge [ Time Frame: 2 minutes ]
- Activity and participation (goal achievement and quality of life) will be measured using the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure (COPM) [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]
- Activity and participation will be measured using the Tetraplegic Upper Limb Activity Questionnaire (TUAQ). [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Ranges between 13 to 130. Lower scores indicate a higher level of independence.
- Satisfaction with surgery will be measured using the Swedish tetraplegia surgery satisfaction questionnaire. [ Time Frame: 10 minutes ]Ranges between 20 - 100. Higher scores indicate a higher level of satisfaction
