Muscle-Specific High-Density Electromyography Arrays for Hand Gesture Classification

Author(s): Leo K. Cheng
Muscle-Specific High-Density Electromyography Arrays for Hand Gesture Classification IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)
Muscle-specific, high-density, flexible electromyography (HD-EMG) electrode arrays were designed and applied to capture the myoelectric activity of key intrinsic hand muscles to classify motions and to allow individual analysis of each muscle. Myoelectric activity was displayed as spatio-temporal maps to visualize muscle activation. Time-domain and temporal-spatial HD-EMG features were extracted to train machine machine-learning classifiers to predict user motion, using data collected from intrinsic hand muscles. The muscle-specific electrode arrays can be combined with EMG decomposition techniques to assess motor unit activity and in applications involving the analysis of dexterous hand motions. read more
