A key function of the Revolutionizing Prosthetics Virtual Integration Environment (VIE) is its ability to facilitate patient training for optimal control of a prosthetic limb. The VIE translates control signals into limb movements and displays a virtual model of these movements. In this environment, patients can test-drive limbs and provide feedback while still in the recovery stage or while a prosthetic arm is manufactured and fitted. The clinician interface to the VIE allows limb configuration parameters to be tuned for each patient in order to achieve maximum performance.
