Myoelectric prosthetic hands have advanced to multi functional, multi degree-of-freedom (DOF) devices. However, potential benefits and disadvantages of these prosthetic hands from user perspectives have seldom been addressed in the literature. Moreover, while pattern recognition (PR) myoelectric control has gained increasing attention in the literature and has been suggested as more intuitive control for multi-function prostheses, most state of the art myoelectric prostheses are still controlled via conventional control. Therefore knowledge is scarce with regard to performance of multi-function hands and PR control in everyday life of the user.
