is one of the serious issues across the globe which is mainly caused by trauma,
medical illness or congenital condition. Because of steep increase in
amputation incidences, the need for progress in technicality of prosthesis is
becoming imperative. In this article, the journey of advancements in upper arm
prosthesis has been discussed step by step.
Moreover, it has also been
enunciated that how from a simple replacement for an arm it now has reached the
mark of giving a patient a fully functional limb with the help of sensors and
myoelectric transducers that are able to translate the remaining muscle signals
into full movement of the prosthesis.
However, researchers are still going on to
make the design of the prosthetic more impressive having a better range of
movement, establishing its interface with brain more efficiently, and making
the control of the prosthetic more user-friendly. In this review, a special
emphasis has also been given to myoelectric prosthesis as this prosthetic
system possesses a decisive influence on rehabilitation results. Moreover, this
prosthetic system is extremely elegant and cutting-edge in both design and
technology and offers a great wearer comfort.
