Elements of a Shoulder Level Prosthesis
A shoulder level prosthesis typically share the same components as an Above Elbow/Trans-Humeral prosthesis, such as, Myo-Electric elbow and hand or Powered Terminal devices .
The shoulder prosthesis typically utilizes an encompassing socket interface that transfers the prosthetic weight and control to the user’s torso. There are more material and design options available to increase comfort and prosthetic control, such as pattern recognition systems to allow for more intuitive control.
