Congress Lecture

Bionic reconstruction of the upper extremity

Aszmann, Oskar

Congress Lecture

Myocontrol based on individual motor unit activities following targeted muscle reinnervation

Abstract: In three patients who underwent targeted muscle reinnervation, we extracted the activity of spinal motor neurons during tasks of the phantom limb and used this information for differentiating up to 12 motor tasks. These results have implications for the control of multi-function prostheses.

Farina, Dario

Congress Lecture

Skin deep: surface topography and prosthetic detection

Abstract: Here we review surface tomography mapping (STM) an alternative measurement paradigm for control of a prosthetic device. STM can be used in moisture-laden environments, and detects only end-level (soft-tissue) activity; however STM may have a yield a limited number of usable DOF versus EMG.

Wininger, Michael

Congress Lecture

Ultrasound imaging as a new human-machine interface for rehabilitation

Abstract: Ultrasound imaging is here introduced as a safe, fast, extremely accurate means of detecting the intended movements and forces of the human hand. Its applications range from control of sophisticated instruments in virtual reality by an amputee, to potential therapies for neuropathic pain. The talk will give an overview of the historical development of this HMI, as well as of its current development and perspectives.
