Abstract:The paper proposes a control method of an index finger prosthesis by using two electromyographic signals measured on skin surfaces of two muscles (flexor digitorum superficialis and the extensor indicis) in a lower arm. We assume that the mass of the human index finger is sufficiently small for its dynamic effect to be neglected and the initial burst part of electromyographic signal generated by human intention precedes the onset of actual displacement of the index finger. In order to make the control input fo… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
