Expensive, small, but worth it!  Nov 18, 2007
If you are interested in myoelectric prosthetics, this IS the book for you. All the information the myoBock course left out. And all the good stuff that school glazed over.

All types of systems are covered, including Hosmer, LTI, Motion Control, Otto Bock, Steeper, and VASI.

Chapters include

1. The Early History of Myoelectric Control of Prosthetic Limbs
2. The Origin and Nature of the Myoelectric Control
3. Signals and Signal Processing
4. Commericial Hardware for the Implementation of Myoelectric Control
5. Meeting the Clients: An Overview
6. Powered Upper Limb Prosthetic Practice in Pediatrics
7. Powered Upper Limb Prosthetics in Adults
8. Training
9. Research and the Future of myoelectric Prosthetics
10. A bibliography on Myoelectric Control of Upper Limb Prostheses

A lot of education in a small text that is worth the hefty price!
