- Magnitude of prosthetic socket rotation and slip [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]Motion capture data and optical sensor data will be used to calculate the amount of prosthetic socket rotation and slip. It is predicted that current socket designs will have some degree of socket movement during normal activities due to soft tissue deformation.
- Magnitude of prosthetic socket movement relative to end effector loading [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]Motion capture data and optical sensor data will be used to calculate the amount of socket movement compared to the terminal device loading for the various tasks. It is predicted that tasks which have more load at the terminal device will result in more socket movement.
- Magnitude of prosthetic socket movement relative to the amount of residual limb rotation. [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]The amount of socket movement will be compared to the amount of residual limb rotation for each task. Residual limb rotation is the angle between the upper arm segment and the scapula segment. It is hypothesized the greater the residual limb angle, the greater the amount of socket movement.
- Difference in range of motion of the shoulder joint between no prosthesis, the original prosthetic socket, and the duplicate socket [ Time Frame: 3 hours ]It is predicted that the range of motion of the shoulder will be statistically the same between the original and duplicate socket.
