An Investigation into Thumb Rotation Using High Density Surface Electromyography of Extrinsic Hand Muscles

Improving our understanding of mechanisms driving thumb rotation could potentially advance the design of current upper limb prosthesis to incorporate powered thumb control increasing the dexterity of the device. This study investigates thumb rotation using high density surface electromyography (HD-sEMG) of extrinsic hand muscles. An apparatus was designed… CONTINUE READING
