Prediction of Distal Arm Posture in 3-D Space From Shoulder Movements for Control of Upper Limb Prostheses

  journal={Proceedings of the IEEE},
C5/C6 tetraplegic patients and transhumeral amputees may be able to use voluntary shoulder motion as command signals for a functional electrical stimulation (FES) system or a transhumeral prosthesis. Such prostheses require, at the most basic level, the control of endpoint position in three dimensions, hand orientation, and grasp. Spatiotemporal synergies exist between the proximal and distal arm joints for goal-oriented reaching movements as performed by able-bodied subjects. To fit these… CONTINUE READING
