Comparative study of state-of-the-art myoelectric controllers for multigrasp prosthetic hands

Jacob L. Segil, MS, et al.

This article compares three myoelectric control systems used with state-of-the-art prosthetic hands. The three myoelectric control systems that were tested required the users to produce different muscular activity in order to perform the same function. The preference of the users was compared and discussed. This article will hopefully provide insight for engineers, prosthetists, and users of prosthetic hands. The likely benefits of this work include a broader understanding of the benefits and pitfalls of myoelectric control systems and a resource for prosthestists and users when deciding upon a type of myoelectric control system.
