The Box and Blocks test, a widely used outcome measure of upper-limb function, was modified and motion capture was added to study performance of a subject with a body-powered prosthesis compared to a myoelectric prosthesis following targeted muscle reinnervation surgery. With motion capture analysis, it was possible to look at movement of the prosthesis as well as compensatory body motion. Addition of motion capture has the potential to be useful to measure outcomes for upper-limb prosthesis users.
