Pagination or Media Count:
Performance evaluations are made to determine for each possible simple prosthesis movement and for coordinated complex motions the following parameters precision of motion, speed of motion, and range of motion when applicable. Integration of data obtained from engineering analyses of the particular prosthetic system under consideration with performance data is directed toward AN OBJECTIVE EVALUATION OF PROSTHESES CONTROL ADEQUACY. The results of each investigation are then incorporated into a statement of recommendations for improving the specifications for control sites, control sequences and transducers.
