Bo Håkansson

Bo Håkansson received his doctorate degree in 1984 at CTH, Gothenburg, Sweden regarding the bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA). Håkansson has also initiated several new projects in bone conduction hearing such as a transcutaneous active hearing implant called the Bone Conduction Implant (BCI), a new audiometric bone conductor called B81 and bone conduction projects related to wireless communication. In recent years, Håkansson also been involved in projects for control of arm prostheses and projects to alleviate phantom pain. The research has resulted in more than 100 scientific publications and 20 patent families. Håkansson is currently Professor of Biomedical Engineering at CTH and director of the Biomedical Signals and Systems research group.

An Alternative Myoelectric Pattern Recognition Approach for the Control of Hand Prostheses: A Case Study of Use in Daily Life by a dysmelia subject
      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
