Prosthetics – Transradial/Below Elbow Amputation

Amputation of the forearm through the ulna and radius. Options are similar to an above elbow amputee, with both myoelectric and conventional systems. A harness is required for a conventional below elbow prosthesis, but is not necessarily required with a myoelectric prosthesis due to the ability to maintain suspension on the bony anatomy of the elbow.
