Should Hands Be Restricted When Measuring Able-Bodied Participants to Evaluate Machine Learning Controlled Prosthetic Hands?

Author(s)3: Morten B. Kristoffersen, Andreas W. Franzke, Corry K. van der Sluis, Raoul M. Bongers, Alessio Murgia
Should Hands Be Restricted When Measuring Able-Bodied Participants to Evaluate Machine Learning Controlled Prosthetic Hands? 786 1000 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)
When evaluating methods for machine-learning controlled prosthetic hands, able-bodied participants are often recruited, for practical reasons, instead of participants with upper limb absence (ULA). However, able-bodied participants have been shown to often perform myoelectric control tasks better than participants with ULA. read more

Adaptive Spatial Filtering of High-Density EMG for Reducing the Influence of Noise and Artefacts in Myoelectric Control

Author(s)3: Martyna Stachaczyk, S. Farokh Atashzar, Dario Farina
Adaptive Spatial Filtering of High-Density EMG for Reducing the Influence of Noise and Artefacts in Myoelectric Control 847 405 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)
Electromyography (EMG) is a source of neural information for controlling neuroprosthetic devices. To enhance the information content of conventional bipolar EMG, high-density EMG systems include tens to hundreds of closely spaced electrodes that non-invasively record the electrical activity of muscles with high spatial resolution. read more
