BACKGROUND Recent studies have documented motions of the upper limbs of healthy subjects during activities of daily living. The aim of this study was to investigate compensatory motions of the upper extremity and torso during tasks for transradial prosthesis users and to determine if bracing simulates prosthesis use. METHODS Seven transradial myoelectric(More)

This paper focuses on kinematic analysis and evaluation of wheelchair mounted robotic arms (WMRA) [3]. It addresses the kinematics of the WMRA with respect to its ability to reach common positions while performing activities of daily living (ADL). A procedure is developed for the kinematic analysis and evaluation of a WMRA. In an effort to evaluate two(More)
This study examined the kinematic differences of a bilateral transradial amputee using myoelectric and body-powered prostheses during select activities of daily living. First in harness suspended, body powered then self-suspended externally powered prostheses, the subject's shoulder and elbow joint movements were calculated and compared while completing an(More)
