Abstract

Microprocessor-based controllers for upper-limb powered prostheses have made significant advances over the past few years. These devices allow prosthetists to evaluate the patient and set-up prosthetic controls to optimize performance for the user. This enables the user to obtain a controller that is customized to suit their specific needs and capabilities. The new Boston Digital(tm) Arm System is the first powered elbow prosthesis to offer this advanced technology. This System serves as a “platform” for upper-limb prosthetic control. With five motor controllers, the Boston Digital Arm System can operate hands grippers, wrist rotators, shoulder lock actuators and more. The System is universal − it works with prosthetic devices from any manufacturer, allowing prosthetist to create the optimal prosthesis for their client.
