Also some basic requirements needed to achieve better prostheses are presented. This book provides an overview of the current state of the art in upper extremity prosthetics for anyone interested in this ?eld: i.e. students and professionals in areas like biomedical engineering, physical medicine, rehabilitation medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and rehabilitation technique.
