The target audience of MyoBeatz are patients after arm and hand amputation, who are waiting to receive prostheses and patients, who had a nerve and muscle transfer. Both patient groups need to engage in neuromuscular training to either be able to fully control their prosthesis or to properly use the transferred muscle. The demographic of the target audience is broad as the need for a prosthesis or a muscle transfer usually is the result of accidents or diseases not discriminated by age, gender, ethnicity or social status.
