Sparse Optimal Motor Estimation (SOME) for Extracting Commands for Prosthetic Limbs

Abstract

It is possible to replace amputated limbs with mechatronic prostheses, but their operation requires the user's intentions to be detected and converted into control signals to the actuators. Fortunately, the motoneurons (MNs) that controlled the amputated muscles remain intact and capable of generating electrical signals, but these signals are difficult to… (More)
