EXPERIENCE WITH ELECTRIC PROSTHESES FOR PARTIAL HAND PRESENTATION WITH THE THUMB INTACT
Repository Usage Stats
Limb deficiency distal to the wrist represents a common and difficult level to treat with a functional prosthesis. Challenges include functional limitations of prosthetic technology, prosthetic interface discomfort, cosmetics and absence of tactile sensation. Until the late 1990s, the lack of acceptable electric prosthetic options as well as concise treatment parameters have limited prosthetic treatment. A new electric partial hand prosthesis design has been developed expanding on the earlier work of Biden and Bush at the University of New Brunswick in the late 1990s.
