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.
