Question


  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of micro-processor-controlled prosthetics for patients with amputation at the hand, elbow, ankle, or knee?

  2. What is the cost-effectiveness of micro-processor-controlled prosthetics for patients with amputation at the hand, elbow, ankle, or knee?

  3. What are the evidence-based guidelines regarding micro-processor-controlled prosthetics for patients with amputation at the hand, elbow, ankle, or knee?


Key Message

One systematic review, 14 non-randomized studies, and two economic evaluations were identified regarding the clinical effectiveness of micro-processor-controlled prosthetics for patients with amputation at the hand, elbow, ankle, or knee. In addition, two evidence-based guidelines were identified.
