IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine's unique aim is to publish original work in the intersection of engineering and clinical translation. The journal's focus is interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers, healthcare providers, and industry and aims to publish results and best practices from these translational efforts.
Enzo Mastinu (S'15) received his M.Sc. degree with top grade in Electronic Engineering from Universita’ degli Studi di Cagliari, Italy, in 2014. During and after the M.Sc. he worked as HW/FW designer for a spin-off company and a postgraduate research scholarship, respectively. He is currently an industrial Ph.D. student at the Department of Electrical Engineering of Chalmers University of Technology (CTH) and Integrum AB, Gothenburg, Sweden. His research focuses on embedded systems for prosthetic control, mainly regarding upper limb amputees. Research interests cover bioelectric signal acquisition and processing, electronics design, algorithms for pattern recognition, as well as bone-anchored prostheses and osseointegration.

Real-time evaluation of novel prosthetic control schemes is critical for translational research on artificial limbs. Recently, two computer-based, real-time evaluation tools, the target achievement control (TAC) test and the Fitts’ law test (FLT), have been proposed to assess real-time controllability.... Read more

Abstract The functionality of upper limb prostheses can be improved by intuitive control strategies that use bioelectric signals measured at the stump level. One such strategy is the decoding of motor volition via myoelectric pattern recognition (MPR), which has shown promising... Read more
