dc.description.abstractPrimary and secondary limb amputations are a common consequence of blast-induced extremity injuries. The resulting limb loss can lead to a severe decrease in quality of life, affecting both the social and mental status. The severity of this problem is historically well recognised, prompting the development of more primitive prosthetics. The last decade has seen rapid technological advancements, with significant impact in the dexterity of bionic limbs. The current market offers highly functional upper and lower limb systems with a variety of design options tailored towards different needs. However, the improvements in the functionality of bionic hardware are not yet matched with the quality of control offered to the users. This results in high device abandonment among the amputees. Here we provide a technical overview of the prosthetic solutions, reflect upon the clinical and user challenges, and indicate the most recent clinical and technical advancements made in the field. We also identify the most promisingtechnologies that are likely to have a strong clinical impact and constitute the basis for the next generation of bionic limbs.en
