In certain situations in daily life, it is required to accurately control the trajectory of the leg in order to adapt to external circumstances, e.g., when entering an escalator or stepping over stones on a cross country path.
In this task, the pilot is challenged to walk over a series of stones. This tests the ability to place the feet in predefined location.
A vast variety of objects of different shape, size, compliance, texture, and weight must be grasped and manipulated in everyday life. The ability to cope with this diversity of require-ments is challenged in this task.
In this task, pilots are asked to grasp and move blue objects in-dividually with their prosthetic hand from their random, initial position on a table surface to a target position on a neighbour-ing table.
Stairs are very common in daily life, both in the private and public space.
In this task, pilots have to ascend and descend a straight staircase twice. Pilots have to bring their wheelchair to a standstill while on the descent from the stairs to show that they are able to stop at any time.
