Clinical Application Of Roll-On Sleeves For Myoelectrically Controlled Transradial And Transhumeral Prosthese
Repository Usage Stats
Three transhumeral and five transradial prostheses have been successfully fit to patients using electrodes installed in roll-on sleeves. New metal electrodes and wiring have been developed and tested along with techniques for installing electrodes so that the sleeves are not damaged. It is now possible to fabricate a system where the sleeve lasts for one year. The roll-on sleeve is a superior way to achieve suspension, especially with patients who change weight.
