Locomotor Adaptation by Transtibial Amputees Walking With an Experimental Powered Prosthesis Under Continuous Myoelectric Control

Author(s): Stephanie Huang, Jeffrey P. Wensman, Daniel P. Ferris
Locomotor Adaptation by Transtibial Amputees Walking With an Experimental Powered Prosthesis Under Continuous Myoelectric Control 780 435 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Lower limb amputees can use electrical activity from their residual muscles for myoelectric control of a powered prosthesis. The most common approach for myoelectric control is a finite state controller…
