Intelligent prosthesis control

Dexterous control of upper limb prostheses is still a challenge due to the limitations of modern myoelectric control interfaces. Multiple factors deteriorate the overall performance and usability of these interfaces, among which, the sequential control of the multiple degrees of freedom and the unreliable decoding of user inputs from weak or fatigued muscles are the most prominent ones. We develop and evaluate a novel man-machine interface that endows a myoelectric prosthesis (MYO) with artificial perception, estimation of user intention, and intelligent control (MYO-PACE) to support the user with automation of the grasping preparation. The performance of the MYO-PACE interface is compared to the state-of-the-art myocontrol (LDA classifier).
