  1. Quick Disconnect TASKA Hands require 6-band Coaxial connections to allow full compatibility with pattern recognition systems. All Low Profile TASKA Hands are fully compatible with pattern recognition systems without additional adaptors.
  2. The battery life of the prosthesis may be improved by configuring the TASKA Hand to “Economy mode”.
  3. TASKA recommends the upgrade to accept an auxiliary TASKA battery when operating with a Utah Arm 3/3+.
