    Rejection rates of body-powered hands are higher than that of hooks. Body powered hands are inefficient. As a result they require an uncomfortable high activation force, and produce a relatively low pinch force in return ...
  • Plettenburg, Dick H.; Hichert, Mona; Smit, Gerwin (Myoelectric Symposium, 2011)
    The purpose of this study was to find an optimal operation force, at which the prosthetic user receives the best force feedback during comfortable prosthesis operation. Three performance factors were introduced: reproducibility, ...
  • Plettenburg, Dick H.; Nieuwendijk, Johan; Smit, Gerwin (Myoelectric Symposium, 2011)
    A person with an arm defect can choose between an electrically powered and a body-powered prosthesis. Both options have their own inherent advantages and disadvantages. The electric prosthesis can be esthetical and easy ...
