Primary outcome measures

The primary outcome measure will be the two point discrimination test (sensibility). Subjects will be assessed in terms of sensibility, range of motion, motor and functional recovery using valid and reliable clinical assessment methods. Results may generate related research in both the field of hand trauma and peripheral nerve injury. Future studies may determine such things as optimum stimulation parameters.
