Towards the implementation of natural prosthetic elbow motion using upper limb joint coordination

Abstract

The control of an active prosthetic elbow is problematic for most transhumeral amputees and a functional solution providing intuitive control over active multi-joint prosthetic upper limbs is yet to be found. The method in this paper uses IMU-based upper arm kinematics to predict the elbow motion based on upper limb joint coordinations during pointing… (More)
