A Comparison of Pattern Recognition Control and Direct Control of a Multiple Degree-of-Freedom Transradial Prosthesis
With existing conventional prosthesis control (direct control), individuals with a transradial amputation use two opposing muscle groups to control each prosthesis motor. As component complexity increases, subjects must switch the prosthesis into different modes to control each component in sequence.... Read more
