Development of Upper Limb Prostheses: Current Progress and Areas for Growth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Upper extremity prosthetic technology has significantly changed in recent years. The devices available and those under development are more and more able to approximate the function of the lost limb; however, other challenges remain. This article provides a brief perspective on the most advanced upper limb prostheses available and the challenges present for continued development of the technology.
