Abstract

See full text

An educational prosthesis device for a wearer of an upper limb prosthesis that includes a grasping device which extends from a distal portion thereof. The device includes an interactive, computerized system for teaching how to use the prosthesis for manual activities, and a computer including a display and input buttons. A program executable by the computer displays on the display a selection of modules that may be selected by the wearer and provide different interactive education sessions. The device further includes a plurality of instruments attachable onto the grasping elements and which are configured for performing predetermined tasks displayed by the interactive computerized system. The device also may include a protective sleeve having a figurine mounted thereon and a garment sleeve having decorations.
