To improve upper-limb prosthesis use, it is important to know which aspects of the actions with the prosthesis need to be improved. To gain insight into these aspects, the current study related performance on a clinical test to parameters of movement of the prosthetic arm and hand as well as to parameters of gaze and force control of the prosthetic hand. Overall, prosthesis users scoring high on the clinical test had distinguishing fundamental outcomes regarding their prosthesis actions. Rehabilitation professionals can use these features to achieve the highest skill level possible for each prosthesis user.
