Traumatic amputation of the arm results in devastating consequences. In comparison to body powered prosthesis, myoelectric prostheses offer a number of advantages including natural control using a patient’s own muscle signals to operate the device. However, even with improved motor control, the lack of sensory feedback from the prosthetic hand remains a formidable barrier that severely limits the use of the prosthesis for fine dexterous tasks. In this study, we set out to investigate the…

TLDR
The specific functions that various levels of upper-extremity amputees gain from their prostheses as well as the device features that aid or detract from their functions are discussed.

TLDR
Inner core cells, which are continuous with Schwann cells, remain in their original condition in denervated corpuscles until regenerating nerves enter the inner core and are essential for corpuscle regeneration, because they may produce some trophic substances that induce the regeneration of multiple axon terminals.
