Abstract

The Center for Bionic Medicine conducts research on upper limb prosthetic devices, components, and technologies. In order to maximize the amount of human subject research able to be completed, a universal fitting frame for subjects with transradial amputations is needed. This paper will outline the development of a universal transradial fitting frame which has been in use for approximately one year at the Center for Bionic Medicine, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, Chicago. This device is easy to assemble, easy to use, and allows for testing a wide variety of prosthetic wrists and hands.
