Prosthetic Arm Control

Prosthetic Arm Control

Researchers at Altec, Inc. (AltecResearch.com), in collaboration with experts in the field of prosthetics, are developing new ways of controlling prosthetic limbs. We are looking for healthy volunteers and volunteers with traumatic or congenital trans-radial (forearm) limb loss to participate in a research study where sensors will be placed on your arm to record muscle activity. You will perform simple muscle contractions to open, close, and rotate a prosthesis provided by us. Single or multiple 2-3 hour recording sessions may be requested

Study Requirements

  • Male or female
  • English speaking and able to follow instructions
  • Healthy with no neurological disorders
  • For volunteers with limb-loss, at least 3 months post trans-radial amputation or congenital limb-loss
