Myoelectric training is important for new patients learning prosthetic limb control. Upper-limb prosthetic fittings are often not successful because the prosthesis does not provide functionality that the user expects. Myoelectric prosthetic users must develop control skills by exercising muscles. Without proper training, users cannot reliably provide suitable myoelectric signals and often fatigue quickly. LTI has developed a logging device (Myologger) to ensure the effectiveness of training over time can be measured accurately.
