First-in-man demonstration of a fully implanted myoelectric sensors system to control an advanced electromechanical prosthetic hand.


BACKGROUND Advanced motorized prosthetic devices are currently controlled by EMG signals generated by residual muscles and recorded by surface electrodes on the skin. These surface recordings are often inconsistent and unreliable, leading to high prosthetic abandonment rates for individuals with upper limb amputation. Surface electrodes are limited because… (More)
