Abstract Methods for realizing three SSF systems for the VA/NU myoelectric hand have been shown. In some cases, estimates concerning amputer acceptance, and references relating to improvements in function, were made. These estimates are purely speculative, and are not intended as a substitute for accurate information which can only be obtained by complete laboratory evaluations of the SSF system codes and by placing the systems on subjects. At this time, it appears that all three of the systems are technically feasible, and that they could be made clinically practical through careful design.
