Abstract

Real-world monitoring offers an objective way of exploring the everyday wear and use of upper-limb prostheses. To inform future developments in this field, a systematic literature review was undertaken, highlighting studies that monitored the activity of prosthesis-users during daily-living. Nine papers relating to the upper-limb were identified, and sixty relating to the lower-limb. Here we concentrate on the ways in which technologies have been utilised to assess the use of upper-limb prosthesis, whilst also drawing on the findings of the broader review to highlight potential uses of these measures, alongside the benefits and disadvantages of different approaches.
