FITTING OF A TRANSCARPAL MYOELECTRIC HAND WITH A LOCKING LINER
Repository Usage Stats
This is a case presentation of the fitting of a transcarpal myoelectric hand with a locking liner for a patient with a wrist disarticulation amputation. Fitting patients with long upper extremity amputations has been a challenge in the past due to the resulting limb length discrepancy between the prosthetic and the sound sides. However, since the introduction of the new Otto Bock 8E44 Transcarpal myoelectric hand, it is now possible to fit wrist disarticulation amputees with a locking liner for suspension.
