In Ecuador, as in the world the most commonly used prostheses are only aesthetic, and the problem with the people that uses them is that they don’t feel fully comfortable and independent with their activities, so in looking for solving this problem, researchers have designed different active prostheses but as the technology advances, these equipment gets more complex, heavy and expensive, so the people who need them doesn’t feel acceptance. The goal of this and the further investigations is development of a new design that can properly integrate the top technologies in a skeletal design which makes natural movements and will improve the quality of life of the people who uses it. This paper analyses the different designs on the available prosthesis and extract from them the best characteristics of the upper limb prostheses design.
