                  misleading title, nothing close to a cure.

                      I really feel for you Luna and hope to God it will happen, still to me 'Cure' means your body's back to normal as it was prior to SCI. That was my point. MISLEADING.

                              While this won't help complete quads, as you must have some spared function to transform into grasp, it would be life-changing for incompletes. Great work.
