  3. 3. The Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control : Psychometric evidence and comparison with upper limb prosthetic outcome measures

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Helen Lindner; Liselotte Hermansson; Ann-Christin Eliasson; Ann Langius Eklöf; Helena Burger; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; capacity; comparison; icf; myoelectric control; psychometric evidence; upper limb prosthesis;

    Abstract : Evaluation of outcomes using validated prosthetic outcome measures (OMs) is a current priority in upper limb (UL) prosthetics, and OMs with psychometric evidence toward UL prosthesis users are thus necessary. The “Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control” (ACMC) is a tool that assesses the ability to control a myoelectric prosthetic hand. READ MORE

  4. 4. Upper limb reduction deficiencies in Swedish children : classification, prevalence and function with myoelectric prostheses

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

  5. 5. Electromyogram Signal Enhancement and Upper-Limb Myoelectric Pattern Recognition

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Sara Abbaspour; Maria Lindén; Christian Antfolk; [2019]

    Abstract : Losing a limb causes difficulties in our daily life. To regain the ability to live an independent life, artificial limbs have been developed. Hand prostheses belong to a group of artificial limbs that can be controlled by the user through the activity of the remnant muscles above the amputation. READ MORE
