In comparison to the conventional SPC configuration, the increment in motion completion rate when using CC and MPC (Tables 2 and 3) indicates that the two proposed solutions would effectively reduce the impact of arm position changes in real-time pattern-recognition control of a multifunctional myoelectric prosthesis. Furthermore, the MPC configuration has a higher motion completion rate in comparison to the CC configuration.

Since P2 and P6 were the two participants who did not use the myoelectric prosthesis much during the week, gaze behavior might be related more to the duration of use rather than to the functional abilities.
The results of the motion analysis when the subject was asked to demonstrate activation of four sequences to track simultaneous control of reinnervated sites using the TMR myoelectric prosthesis are shown in Figure 2.
The range of elbow flexion with the myoelectric prosthesis was close to that of a nonamputee control subject, in comparison to the static locked elbow used with the body-powered prosthesis (Table 3).
From a qualitative perspective, although no formal questionnaire was used, the subject reported feeling increased naturalness of movement and less mental effort to operate the TMR myoelectric prosthesis compared to the body-powered prosthesis.
This prosthesis may be a previously fit body-powered prosthesis, a two-site myoelectric prosthesis, a hybrid prosthesis or, for amputees with shoulder disarticulation, a prosthesis with touch pad control.
