    • A STUDY OF THE USE OF COMPENSATION MOTIONS WHEN USING PROSTHETIC WRISTS 

      Zinck, A.; Kyberd, P.; Hill, W.; Bush, G.; Stavdahl, Ø.; Biden, E.; Fraser, K. (2008)
      It is well known that the functional capability of a prosthetic hand is less than that of the natural hand and thus it cannot perform the majority of the tasks a natural hand does, as well or as easily. Of the many consequences ...
    • Control Of Powered Prosthetics Using Bend-Enhanced Fibre Optic Sensors 

      Lovely, D. F.; Hudgins, B.; Danisch, L.; Caldwell, R.; Daly, J. A.; Biden, E. (1993)
      Powered prosthetics have bezome the accepted method of replacing litnb function lost by traumatic or congenital amputations. The control of these devices is accomplished by either mechanical switches or by switches based ...
    • Design Of A Prosthetic Elbow For Elbow Disarticulation Amputations 

      Hughes, G.; Biden, E.; Olive, M.; Young, W.; Wedderburn, Z.; Caldwell, R.; Stocker, D. (1993)
      Long above elbow and elbow disarticulation amputations pose a problem in fitting as the residual limb is nearly the same length as the upper arm on the sound side. Although these problems have been recognized for some time, ...
    • USING GROSS MOTOR ACTIVITIES TO ASSESS UPPER LIMB PROSTHETIC FUNCTION 

      Biden, E.; Ross, M.; Chester, V.; Bush, G.; Hill, W.; Tingley, M.; MacPhee, B.; ... (8 authors) (2005)
      For children with unilateral below elbow limb loss, many of the activities for which a prosthesis is of value involve gross motor function during play. To assess function in these activities we studied normally limbed children ...
