dc.description.abstract The needs of above elbow amputees vary a lot depending on the level of amputation and the patient’s physical and mental abilities. Eliminating the hassle of a harness for a body powered elbow lock has always been a very tempting idea. Especially if the price you have to pay for this is not as high as the weight of a fully electrified elbow joint. Yet the success of such a fitting depends very much on the controllability of the lock. Furthermore a low level of noise is as essential as an instantaneous activation of the lock. This presentation will give you an idea of the possibilities which a new high-tech electronically controlled lock offers to optimize high-level myoelectric fittings. Furthermore, it will explain different control options which allow an adaptation to the individual needs and capabilities of the patient en_US
