Author(s): Reza Sharif Razavian, Borna Ghannadi, Naser Mehrabi, Mark Charlet, John McPhee
Feedback Control of Functional Electrical Stimulation for 2D Arm Reaching Movements 480 270 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

     Functional electrical stimulation (FES) can be used as a neuroprosthesis in which muscles are stimulated by electrical pulses to compensate for the loss of voluntary movement control. Modulating the…

Comparing Surface and Intramuscular Electromyography for Simultaneous and Proportional Control Based on a Musculoskeletal Model: A Pilot Study

Comparing Surface and Intramuscular Electromyography for Simultaneous and Proportional Control Based on a Musculoskeletal Model: A Pilot Study

Author(s): Dustin L. Crouch, Lizhi Pan, William Filer, Jonathan W. Stallings, He Huang
Comparing Surface and Intramuscular Electromyography for Simultaneous and Proportional Control Based on a Musculoskeletal Model: A Pilot Study 502 415 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

     Simultaneous and proportional control (SPC) of neural-machine interfaces uses magnitudes of smoothed electromyograms (EMG) as control inputs. Though surface EMG (sEMG) electrodes are common for clinical neural-machine interfaces, intramuscular…

Myoelectric Control Based on a Generic Musculoskeletal Model: Toward a Multi-User Neural-Machine Interface

Author(s): Lizhi Pan, Dustin L. Crouch, He Huang
Myoelectric Control Based on a Generic Musculoskeletal Model: Toward a Multi-User Neural-Machine Interface 641 551 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

   This paper aimed to develop a novel electromyography (EMG)-based neural-machine interface (NMI) that is user-generic for continuously predicting coordinated motion between metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and wrist flexion/extension. The NMI requires…
