Abstract: Article serves as the introduction to the American Academy of Orthotists and Prosthetists State-of-the-Science Conference Proceedings covering the subject of upper-limb prosthetic control strategies. The purpose of the introduction is to orient consumers to the contents of the proceedings. Specifically, the conference focused on a systematic literature review comparing benefits of myoelectric and body-powered upper-limb prosthetic control options. This introduction lists the various perspectives such as clinical, engineering, and end-users represented at the conference. It then introduces larger topics discussed by the conference participants, such as the traditional manner in which upper-limb prosthetic control strategies are introduced as well as viewpoints regarding standard of care.
