The DEKA Arm has multiple degrees of freedom which historically have been operated primarily by inertial measurement units (IMUs). However, the IMUs are not appropriate for all potential users; new control methods are needed. The purposes of this study were: 1) to describe usability and satisfaction of two controls methods—IMU and myoelectric pattern recognition (EMG-PR) controls—and 2) to compare ratings by control and amputation level. A total of 36 subjects with transradial (TR) or transhumer...

Background:Research on adaptation to advanced upper limb prostheses is needed.Objectives:To (1) examine change in function, quality of life and community integration after prosthetic training, (2) determine whether change in outcomes varied by prosthesis complexity, and (3) compare patterns of change at 1 month for those who withdrew from the study and those who did not.Study design:Quasi-experimental time series.Methods:Data were analyzed for 22 participants (18 completers). Performance and sel...

Introduction EMG pattern recognition control (EMG-PR) is a promising option for control of upper limb prostheses with multiple degrees of freedom (DOF). The purposes of this study were to 1) evaluate outcomes of EMG-PR and inertial measurement units (IMU) control of the DEKA Arm as compared to personal prosthesis; and 2) compare outcomes of EMG-PR to IMU control of DEKA Arm. Methods This was a quasi-experimental, multi-site study with repeated measures that compared non-randomized groups using t...

Background:Research is needed to understand how upper limb prosthesis users take advantage of multiple grip options.Objectives:To quantify usage of DEKA hand grip patterns during home use and compare patterns of usage at home to test sessions.Study design:Observational study design.Methods:Data were collected from 21 subjects. Engineering data on grip were downloaded at various intervals. Proportion of time in each grip was calculated for the first 4 weeks of home use, later months, and test ses...

Objectives Objectives were to 1) compare self-reported function, dexterity, activity performance, quality of life and community integration of the DEKA Arm to conventional prostheses; and 2) examine differences in outcomes by conventional prosthesis type, terminal device type and by DEKA Arm configuration level. Methods This was a two-part study; Part A consisted of in-laboratory training. Part B consisted of home use. Study participants were 23 prosthesis users (mean age = 45 ± 16; 87% male) wh...

Abstract Study Design 55 subjects with upper limb amputation were administered the T-MAP twice within one week. Purpose To develop a timed measure of activity performance for persons with upper limb amputation (T-MAP); examine the measure's internal consistency, test-retest reliability and validity; and compare scores by prosthesis use. Introduction Measures of activity performance for persons with upper limb amputation are needed The time required to perform daily activities is a meaningful met...
