COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF MICROPROCESSORS IN UPPER LIMB PROSTHETICS
Repository Usage Stats
The recent emergence of microprocessor based prosthetic control for the individual with upper limb deficiency has significantly expanded the spectrum of treatment options and inclusion criteria for this patient population. Microprocessors can accept a wide variety of input devices and ranges enhancing an individual’s prosthetic function allowing control options for individuals who were at one time not candidates for such prosthetic management. Additionally, myoelectric control parameters can be adjusted to optimize function while retaining the flexibility to individualize each prosthesis.
