dc.description.abstract This presentation describes transhumeral and transradial prostheses which have been successfully fit to patients using electrodes installed in roll-on suspension sleeves. Metal electrodes and modified wiring systems have been developed and tested along with techniques for installing electrodes in roll-on sleeves to provide improved suspension and electrode contact. This series of patients has shown that a Roll-on sleeve is an excellent way to achieve superior suspension and greater range of motion. Information will be presented to document the increase in suspension and range of motion in several patients who were fit with both traditional and roll-on suspension systems. This design maintains consistent electrode contact for patients, especially those who have volume changes or experience difficulty with the traditional suspension methods. This system is adaptable to many prosthetic hand and elbow systems and amputation levels. Future research directions will be suggested to improve this system and make it available to a wider population of users. en_US
