      Part II, “Upper Extremity Amputation: Principles, Prosthetic Restoration, and Rehabilitation” is devoted to an upper extremity amputation and prosthetic restoration. It is underscored that the anatomical complexity of the human arm makes it very difficult to develop a comprehensive control system for powered : Mark Pitkin. movement of an upper-limb prosthesis or orthosis (eg, hand, wrist, and/or elbow) is driven by microchip- processed electrical activity in the muscles of the remaining limb or limb stump. Myoelectric prostheses use muscle activity from the remaining limb for control of joint movement.
