 This describes a case study in which wrist disarticulation resulted in resuming work through training in myoelectric prosthesis. A training prosthesis allowed the patient to acclimate to its operation, weight, and use during ADL and work prior to constructing a personal prosthesis. The patient's experience with the training prosthesis determines whether or not to have a prosthesis made. This process is important for the continued use of a myoelectric prosthesis throughout a patient's life.
