Intramuscular EMG-driven Musculoskeletal Modelling: Towards Implanted Muscle Interfacing in Spinal Cord Injury Patients
EMG-driven neuromusculoskeletal (NMS) modelling approaches have been developed to estimate user-intended joint moments. This study proposes intramuscular EMG-driven NMS modelling as a control method applied to recordings from muscle implants with the long-term goal of applications in assistive exoskeletons for spinal cord injury (SCI) patients. We recorded intramuscular EMG (iEMG) and provided joint torque predictions based on the NMS model. The approach was applied to healthy individuals as well as incomplete SCI patients. The results showed high correlation between experimental and predicted joint torques as well as comparable performance when using non-invasive and implanted EMG systems... Read more
