The following is a brief introduction to powered prosthetics and myoelectric control. This paper reviews the present availability and clinical impact of myoelectric prostheses. A significant observation is that these systems have reached a sufficient degree of maturity that they are accepted by many health-care funding agencies as reasonable and cost-effective components of the rehabilitation process. The limitations of both the mechanical systems and the myoelectric controls are discussed in… CONTINUE READING
