Novel postural control algorithm for control of multifunctional myoelectric prosthetic hands

Jacob L. Segil, PhD; Richard F. ƒƒ. Weir, PhD

This article presents a novel myoelectric control algorithm to be used with state of the art prosthetic hands. Various design parameters of the algorithm were tested and determined empirically. The usefulness of the algorithm in a clinical setting was tested. 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 possible new control system for myoelectric hand users.
