Abstract:

Prosthesis control represents a challenging research topic. This study focuses on the role of stump muscle activity, which has not been explored in depth yet. Based on an ultrasound analysis of the stump, electromyography electrodes are integrated in a test socket and 3D gait analysis is conducted.
