MEET THE TEAM

In May of 2006 the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation along with a number of interested parties brought together a large group of experts, that would be interested in developing a clinical assessment protocol of upper limb function that would allow for the quantification of change in upper limb function for individuals with traumatic tetraplegia. A smaller task force of six individuals emerged from the larger meeting, who are now the GRASSP Research and Development Group (GRDG). Since 2016, two of the original members have resigned and one new member has joined the development group.
