Due to the difficulties in measurement of muscle activities and the complex musculoskeletal structure, estimations of the thumb-tip force in real time have been a challenge for controlling artificial prosthesis naturally. This study describes an isometric thumb-tip force estimation technique based on phenomenological muscle model named Hill's model. The surface electromyogram (sEMG) signals of the muscles near surface were measured and converted to muscle activation information. The activations… CONTINUE READING
