The aim of this research was to determine whether intermanual transfer effects could be detected after training with a prosthetic simulator.
The movement time decreased significantly more in the experimental group compared to the control group, indicating faster handling of the prosthesis. Intermanual transfer was present after training with a myoelectric prosthetic simulator in children and adults.
