  author={Stephan Johann Lehmler and Muhammad Saif-ur-Rehman and Tobias Glasmachers and Ioannis Iossifidis},
Accurate decoding of surface electromyography (sEMG) is pivotal for muscle-to-machine-interfaces (MMI) and their application for e.g. rehabilitation therapy. sEMG signals have high inter-subject variability, due to various factors, including skin thickness, body fat percentage, and electrode placement. Therefore, obtaining high generalization quality of a trained sEMG decoder is quite challenging. Usually, machine learning based sEMG decoders are either trained on subject-specific data, or at… 

From Motion to Muscle

This work develops an approach based on a recurrent neural network trained in a supervised learning session that achieves a remarkable precision for previously trained motion while new motions that were not trained before still have high accuracy.
