Abstract

Patients with “high” level bilateral upper extremity deficiencies require maximum functional rehabilitation to increase independence and self-care skills. Traditional prosthetic rehabilitation for these individuals utilizes various control mechanisms including body power, electric, and hybrid systems. Rehabilitation teams rarely gain experience with multiple cases using varied control methods. In most cases systems are recommended and fit based on the limited past experiences and training of the rehabilitation team members and the local prosthetist.
