From: Home Use of a Neural-connected Sensory Prosthesis Provides the Functional and Psychosocial Experience of Having a Hand Again

Figure 4

Impact of home use with sensation on end of stage psychosocial measures. (A) Patient-specific functional scale (PSFS) scores over time. Higher scores indicate greater perceived ability. (B) QuickDASH disability score over time. Higher scores indicate higher perceived disability. (C) OPUS Quality of life score over time. Higher scores indicate better perceived life. (D) Patient experience scales (long form) scores over time. Scale scores were computed by averaging ratings on items within each scale. Higher ratings indicate better outcomes. Statistical comparisons were made between individual items scores within each scale using paired t-tests. (E) RHI embodiment survey. Agreement ratings on the embodiment-related statements are shown as filled bars. Ratings on control statements are shown as striped bars. Embodiment-related statements were compared to control statements with two-sample t-tests. Error bars indicate standard error of the mean. All panels: Each subject completed each survey once per testing session. Single asterisk indicates significance of p < 0.05. Double asterisks indicate significance of p ≤ 0.001. Double cross indicates change greater than the minimal detectable change (MDC-90) reported for that test.
