When selected areas of the socket system are compressed to this degree, most of the lost motion between the limb bone and socket wall is eliminated.
This lost motion occurs because the end of the humerus must compress the muscle and fat between the bone and the socket wall before force can be transmitted.
in positioning linkages can equate to dead-band and hysteresis of more than 5%.
UCLA Archive Curator Eddie Richmond said, "We are pleased to have preserved this rarity and having added a new piece to the puzzle of a once completely lost motion
Low reciprocating mass in deactivated mode minimizes lost motion
spring load and associated friction.
The ballscrews are located in the exact center of each axis, which effectively eliminates heat and lost motion
are machined to close tolerances, minimizing lost motion
Total lost motion
from all sources is limited to one arc minute.
Other factors such as thrust bearing quality, rigidity and assembly method affect structural compliance or lost motion
and can decrease accuracy.

Tilt fault measures the motion of the tilt-drive pulleys and detects any lost motion
to avoid catastrophe.
Wind-up in the flexible spline creates excessive lost motion
