A Comparison of Pattern Recognition Control and Direct Control of a Multiple Degree-of-Freedom Transradial Prosthesis

Author(s): Todd A. Kuiken, Laura A. Miller, Kristi Turner, Levi Hargrove
A Comparison of Pattern Recognition Control and Direct Control of a Multiple Degree-of-Freedom Transradial Prosthesis 780 435 IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (JTEHM)

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…
