Artificial intelligence (AI) takes these prosthetic hands to new levels when compared with the traditional prosthetics that rely on electromyography (EMG) alone. EMG measures of muscular electrical activity in response to a nerve’s stimulation in order to move the hand.
Traditional upper limb prosthetics, which often consist of two hooks controlled by a cable to another body part, require people who’ve lost a hand or arm to learn to manipulate a tool that’s connected to their body, rather than to control a prosthetic built to work as their lost limb once did.
The triple study act re-enforces Kaufman’s assertion that roughly Two Thirds of the amputee population can’t get a prosthesis. And a new study to be published in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Vascular Surgery (JVS) tells the same story from a slightly different angle. According to this report, only 42 percent of new lower-limb amputees are referred to a prosthetist by their surgical care team or primary care physician.

Deep Vein Thrombosis is the silent killer of about 300,000 Americans a year. Many Americans have been directly and indirectly affected by DVT. These deaths are caused by blood clots in the legs and arms making their way to the lungs or brain. It is important to recognize and spread awareness of the early warning signs of these fatal blood clots to make this silent killer more noticeable in time. In remembrance and acknowledgement of those affected by DVT, here are a few resources to further your awareness and options to show support.
