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.
