This study is exploring what factors may impact function using a prosthesis. Individuals recruited for the study will be asked to come into our lab to do some testing with their prosthesis and possibly some tests without.

The goal of this study is to perform outcome measures with individuals who have upper limb loss or difference and use a myoelectric prosthesis. Exploratory analysis will be done to look for factors such as type of terminal device, componentry, level of amputation, and control type that impact outcomes.
