CUSTOM SILICONE SOCKETS FOR MYOELECTRIC PROSTHESES
Sockets for myoelectric prostheses have not changed significantly over the past 30 years. The Otto Bock Muenster style socket (MyoBock) was developed in the late 1960’s by Fruzinsky based on the original Muenster design ...
CLINICALLY PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF PATTERN RECOGNITION FOR MYOELECTRIC PROSTHESES
The promise of pattern recognition for improved control of upper-extremity powered prostheses has existed for a long time. During the years of offline research and algorithm development, very little experience has been ...
Removal of ECG Artifacts from Myoelectric Prosthesis Control Signals
We investigated removal of electrocardiogram (ECG) artifacts from the myoelectric prosthesis control signals, taken from the reinnervated pectoralis muscles of a patient with bilateral amputations at shoulder disarticulation ...
BIOMECHANIC ASPECTS AND PATIENT NEEDS LEAD THE PATH TO A UNIQUE WRISTJOINT FOR MYOELECTRIC PROSTHESIS
The wrist plays an important role for the function of the human hand. The wrist joint is a complicated anatomical unit, consisting of various bones, ligaments and muscles. The distal and proximal joints combined with the ...
AN ELECTROMECHANICAL QUICK-CONNECT MECHANISM FOR MYOELECTRIC PROSTHESES USING SILICONE SLEEVES
A unique children’s upper-limb prosthesis prototype with an improved suspension and electronic interconnect has been developed. Silicone liners provide effective suspension for prostheses. However, they have been problematic ...
USING THE INTERNET FOR AN ANONYMOUS SURVEY OF MYOELECTRICAL PROSTHESIS WEARERS
in the last decades, a multitude of surveys were carried out to investigate broadly different fields associated with prosthesis acceptance, reasons for non-use or user preferences for artificial hand improvements [1-9]. ...
