myoelectric prostheses | myoelectric control | upper limb prostheses | coordination dynamics | pattern recognition
More advanced prosthetic hands are entering the market, asking for new ways to gauge their performance. Natural and dexterous control are very important for patients and new control paradigms, such as pattern recognition, might facilitate this. Specifically naturalness of control and embodiment of the prosthesis are difficult to be directly and reliably measured, but studying joint angle coordination patterns might reveal those aspects.
