This article compares three myoelectric control
systems used with state-of-the-art prosthetic hands.
The three myoelectric control systems that were tested
required the users to produce different muscular
activity in order to perform the same function. The
preference of the users was compared and discussed.
This article will hopefully provide insight for engineers,
prosthetists, and users of prosthetic hands. The
likely benefits of this work include a broader understanding
of the benefits and pitfalls of myoelectric
control systems and a resource for prosthestists and
users when deciding upon a type of myoelectric control
