The ACMC is an observational based assessment measuring a persons ability to operate a myoelectric prosthetic hand when performing ordinary life activities. The test consists of 32 items scored on a 4-point rating scale by a trained observer. Previously, several aspects of validity and reliability have been shown. The project aims to further test the ACMC by testing other psychometric aspects of the ACMC. In addition, the project aims to  develop and test the ACMC in other language versions and when using it for other types of prostheses.
