IMPROVED CONTROL FOR AN ARTIFICIAL ARM
Successful control of multi-degree of freedom upper limb prostheses generally uses some form of sequential instruction. This is because simultaneous control of multiple inputs requires a considerable concentration to be ...
FUNCTIONAL OUTCOME OF ADOLESCENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS WITH CONGENITAL UPPER LIMB REDUCTION DEFICIENCY
In the Netherlands approximately seventy children with a congenital upper limb reduction deficiency will be born each year. One third of these children will be eligible for a prosthesis. Little is known about the functional ...
Development of myoelectric controllers for hand prostheses
This paper describes a research project at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) to develop a myoelectric controller. The myoelectric controller interprets control intentions from the ...
ELECTROMECHANICAL ANALYSIS OF A COMPLETE ARM PROSTHESIS (EMAS)
A characterisation of a complete arm prosthesis is necessary to develop effective control. This is a description of the use of Lagrange methodology to describe the system and to optimise for motion control. The Lagrange ...
A MINIMAL JERK PROSTHESIS CONTROL SYSTEM
Efficient prosthesis control is dependant on the user’s ability to control the desired movements of the prosthesis. Observed manifestations of jerk on a complete arm prosthesis can lead to difficulty in performing controlled ...
ASSESSEMENTS, CONCIDERATIONS AND FITTING OF A TRANS HUMERAL HIGH LEVEL BRACHIAL PLEXUS INJURED INDIVIDUAL WITH HO
This talk will discuss the assessment and prosthetic problems associated with fitting an individual with a mid level Trans Humeral amputation
A PRELIMINARY STUDY OF 40+ UPPER EXTREMITY PATIENTS USING THE ANIMATED CONTROL SYSTEM
This talk will discuss the findings of 40+ who have been fit with the Animated control system (ACS). All individuals have been fit with the ACS-1100 or ACS-1105 controllers. The information being obtained is from the controller.
PRELIMINARY EXPERIENCE WITH HYDRAULICALLY DRIVEN HAND PROSTHESES
The need for further development of prosthetic hands with enhanced functionalities and better cosmetic appearance than conventional prosthetic hands became evident in many investigations of this topic [1-3]. Consequently, ...
SHOULDER DISARTICULATION FITTING WITH 6 INDEPENDENTLY CONTROLLED MOTORS AFTER TARGETED HYPER-REINNERVATION NERVE TRANSFER SURGERY
In 2002, targeted hyper-reinnervation nerve transfer surgery was performed unilaterally on a bilateral shoulder disarticulation amputee. The goal of this surgery was to create additional sites using the remaining unused ...
