This study presents a possible solution of the general problem of coordinating muscle stimulation in a neuroprosthesis when multiarticular muscles introduce mechanical coupling between joints. In a hand-grasp neuroprosthesis, extrinsic hand muscles cross the wrist joint and introduce large wrist flexion moments during grasp. In order to control hand grasp and wrist angle independently, a controller must take the mechanical coupling into account. In simulation, we investigated the use of… CONTINUE READING
