This presentation describes transhumeral and transradial prostheses which have been successfully fit to patients using electrodes installed in roll-on suspension sleeves. Metal electrodes and modified wiring systems have been developed and tested along with techniques for installing electrodes in roll-on sleeves to provide improved suspension and electrode contact. This series of patients has shown that a Roll-on sleeve is an excellent way to achieve superior suspension and greater range of…

AN ELECTROMECHANICAL QUICK-CONNECT MECHANISM FOR MYOELECTRIC PROSTHESES USING SILICONE SLEEVES

TLDR
An electromechanical quick-connect attachment is developed that enables the user to easily connect/disconnect the prosthetic shell and hand system to/from the liner, yet still provides for the mechanical suspension/connection between liner and prosthesis.

Test Rig Design and Preliminarily Assessment for a Transradial Socket

TLDR
This experimental work covers two main tests for assessment the transradial socket at different positions and planes that can predict when dislocation between the socket and residual limb will happen at any weight and plane.

Design of a myoelectric 3D-printed prosthesis for a child with upper limb congenital amputation

TLDR
The proposed prosthesis implements two important features: the use of sound biofeedback and a soft socket with in-liner electrodes that will make the hand prosthesis easy to use, lightweight and affordable, improving the control performance and increasing the acceptance rate.

Prosthetic sockets stabilized by alternating areas of tissue compression and release.

TLDR
Three socket designs are introduced: transradial, transfemoral, and transhumeral, which aim to reduce lost motion when the bone is moved with respect to the socket.

A novel gel liner system with embedded electrodes for use with upper limb myoelectric prostheses

TLDR
The results suggest that this gel liner system is a clinically viable option and that it may offer advantages over current clinical technology for users of upper limb myoelectric prostheses.

Enhancing the versatility of wireless biopotential acquisition for myoelectric prosthetic control

TLDR
This work describes the fabrication and performance of a fully wireless and batteryless EMG recording system and use of this system to direct virtual and electric-powered limbs in real-time and demonstrates the advantage of using MRC to optimize power transfer to a network of wireless devices.
