  • state of the art in upper extremity prostheses

    I'm doing some research on state of the art prostheses for upper
    extremity amputees and I was hoping some people in the community here
    could point me in the right direction(s). Specifically I'm interested
    in systems that are able to simultaneously control multiple joints,
    such as for a reach and grasp task. I have found some commercially
    available components such as the Otto Bock sensor hand, etc., that
    seem popular but I haven't seen much in the way of commercially
    available arms or components that lend themselves to simultaneous
    control or how this might be achieved. Additionally, if anyone knows
    of research or clinical trials currently going on, or knows specific
    limitations of current systems (grip strength, wrist flexion strength,
    etc.) I'd love to talk. Thank you in advance for the help.
