Abstract

Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) has rapidly transitioned from an experimental procedure-first performed on a human patient in 2002 (Kuiken et al. 2004)-to accepted clinical practice. It is now performed worldwide on individuals with transhumeral and shoulder disarticulation amputations. When coupled with the rehabilitation strategies described in preceding chapters, TMR provides significant functional improvements and increased quality of life for individuals with high-level upper limb amputations. However, current functional control has many limitations, and the individuals currently.
