Targeted Reinnervation—Surgical Outcome of 30 Patients

Abstract: Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR) is a surgical technique that creates myoelectric control signals in the residual limb of amputees using the remaining nerve and remnant musculature in the residual limb. Outcomes of 30 TMR patients will be presented.

EMG Sensor and Controller Design for a Multifunction Hand Prosthesis System - The UNB Hand

Abstract: A controller and EMG sensors are being developed to control a three axis hand that can perform six basic grip patterns. The modular system communicates via CAN bus using a standardised bus protocol. The main controller incorporates several control strategies including pattern classification of EMG.

Feedback Integration in the Control Loop of Prosthetics

Abstract: The study addresses the TMR transradial/transhumeral amputation. The impression that the prosthesis is following the desired intent and providing correspondent feedback motivates the wearer during the training sessions and daily life, thereby increasing the acceptance rate.

Congress Lecture

Multidegree of Freedom Simultaneous Control of Arm Prosthesis - a Natural Motion Case Study

Abstract: Current myoelectrical prostheses allow single control of the joints only. The aim of this work is to enable a new control. In a unique pan-European case study a 17 year old shoulder-ex-amputatee underwent surgery in order to achieve a novel prosthesis-control: “thought-controlled prosthesis”.

Congress Lecture

Moving Towards an Open Standard: The UNB Prosthetic Device Communication Protocol

Abstract: UNB has released a draft protocol to the Standardised Communication Interface for Prosthetics group in the hopes that it could further advance the initiative’s goal of developing an open standard for the communication of prosthetic limb components. The benefits of its implementation are highlighted.

EMG Pattern Recognition Based Control of a Two Degree of Freedom Powered Prosthetic Wrist

Abstract: A myoelectric pattern recognition based control scheme was modified to control a novel two degree of freedom (DOF) powered wrist design in conjunction with a conventional electric hand design and was successfully tested by a trans-radial amputee.

Multimodal Sensor Control for Orientating the Hand of a 3-DOF Transradial Myoelectric Prosthesis

Abstract: The development of our multimodal sensor control for a 3 degrees-of-freedom hand is reported. An accelerometer is installed to compute the posture angles of the residual arm and drive the pronation joint and the wrist flexion joint. The experiments showed that it naturally reduces compensating shoul
