Two versions of a novel compact wrist design were built and tested. The device design flexes and extends, rotates at the same point on the arm, and fits within the hand, taking up little space in the forearm. It was tested with a single-prosthesis user in the laboratory. A controller that uses the patterns of activity in the forearm muscles was employed to allow the user to control the wrist.
