Control of Upper Limb Prostheses: Terminology and Proportional Myoelectric Control-A Review
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)
The recent introduction of novel multifunction hands as well as new control paradigms increase the demand for advanced prosthetic control systems. In this context, an unambiguous terminology and a good understanding of the ...
A Multi-Modal Approach for Hand Motion Classification Using Surface EMG and Accelerometers
(IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Conference Proceedings;6091054, Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
For decades, electromyography (EMG) has been used for diagnostics, upper-limb prosthesis control, and recently even for more general human-machine interfaces. Current commercial upper limb prostheses usually have only two ...
Examining the Adverse Effects of Limb Position on PatternRecognition Based Myoelectric Control
(;5627638, Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010)
Pattern recognition of myoelectric signals for the control of prosthetic devices has been widely reported and debated. A large portion of the literature focuses on offline classification accuracy of pre-recorded signals. ...
Resolving the Limb Position Effect in Myoelectric Pattern Recognition
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
Reported studies on pattern recognition of electromyograms (EMG) for the control of prosthetic devices traditionally focus on classification accuracy of signals recorded in a laboratory. The difference between the constrained ...
System Training and Assessment in Simultaneous Proportional Myoelectric Prosthesis Control
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014)
Background Pattern recognition control of prosthetic hands take inputs from one or more myoelectric sensors and controls one or more degrees of freedom. However, most systems created allow only sequential control of one ...
The Artificial Pancreas: A Dynamic Challenge
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
In patients with diabetes mellitus type 1, the pancreatic insulin production ceases, causing raise in blood glucose level (BGL) and potentially severe long-term complications. The “holy grail” of diabetes treatment is the ...
