A colleague is looking at testing a new upper limb prosthesis design, but
we are unsure of what sort of loads to subject it to in testing.

I am looking at the ergonomics literature to get a feel for the loads
involved in common activities, but does anyone on the list have any
experience (or literature refs.) to offer on the subject of suitable
testing regimes for upper limb prostheses?

As usual, a summary of any replies will be posted to the list.

TIA,
Rob.
