Effect of clinical parameters on the control of myoelectric robotic prosthetic hands

Manfredo Atzori, PhD, et al.

Amputation of the upper limb is one of the most severely impairing injuries. Surface electromyography is a promising method to naturally control noninvasive, dexterous, robotic prosthetic hands. The scientific literature proved that the electrical activity of the remnant muscles can be used to recognize a few hand movements performed by subjects with transradial amputation. However the effect of clinical parameters related to the amputation has not been analyzed thoroughly. We show that relationships between several clinical parameters and robotic hand control capabilities exist, thus laying the foundation for innovations in neuroscience and understanding amputation-related clinical parameters, surgery procedures, and prosthetics.
