The purpose of this research is to construct an intelligent upper limb prosthesis control system that uses electromyogram (EMG) signals. The signal processing of EMG signals is performed using a linear multiple regression model that can learn parameters in a short time. Using this model, joint angles are predicted, and the motion pattern discrimination is(More)
The objective of this study is to develop a method of discriminating real-time motion from electromyogram (EMG) signals. We previously proposed a motion discrimination method. This method could discriminate five motions (hand opening, hand closing, hand chucking, wrist extension, and wrist flexion) at a rate of above 90 percent from four channel EMG signals(More)
This study proposes a motion discrimination method that considers the variation of electromyogram (EMG) signals associated with a lapse of time. In a previous study, we proposed a real-time discrimination method based on EMG signals of the forearm. Our method uses a hypersphere model as a discriminator. In motion discrimination using EMG signals, one(More)
This study developed a method of discriminating real-time motion from electromyogram (EMG) signals. We previously proposed a real-time motion discrimination method using hyper-sphere models that discriminated five motions (open, grasp, pinching, wrist extension, and wrist flexion) above 90% and quickly learned EMG signals. Our method prevents elbow motions(More)
In human gait motion analysis, which is one useful method for efficient physical rehabilitation to define various quantitative evaluation indices, ground reaction force, joint angle and joint loads are measured during gait. To obtain these data as unrestrained gait measurement, a novel gait motion analysis system using mobile force plates and attitude(More)
Trans-femoral amputees must regain moving pattern by refined rehabilitation program using ground reaction forces, joint angles and joint moments applied on a prosthetic limb. On the other hand, understanding those loads and kinematic variables is indispensable for gait analysis based on the biomechanical consideration of trans-femoral amputees. However,(More)
