Influence of standardized activities on validity of Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control

Helen Y. N. Lindner, MSc, et al.

For upper-limb myoelectric prosthesis users, good prosthetic control may make it easier for them to do their daily activities. Prosthetic training is usually offered, but a clinical assessment tool is needed to follow up on the user's progress in controlling the prosthesis. The Assessment of Capacity for Myoelectric Control was developed to meet this need. In this study, we examined whether different two-handed activities would give different assessment results. Six common activities were compared. The results showed that the assessment scores were similar and that the activities could be used for both men and women and both prosthetic sides.
