Abstract:

The goal of this pilot study is to assess the impact of training on voice recognition software as part of the rehabilitation process that Military patients with amputation, or peripheral nerve loss to at least on upper extremity, undergo at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, WRAMC. the integration of voice recognition software into a comprehensive rehabilitation program may create new employment opportunities for the upper extremity injured or amputee patients recovering at, WRAMC. The technology of voice recognition software offers a viable alternative for standard computer keyboard operation that the loss of function with one or both hands disrupts.
