Myoelectric signals and pattern recognition from implanted electrodes in two TMR subjects with an osseointegrated communication interface

By Kirstin Ahmed

Conventionally, a prosthesis arm is controlled via the signals from contracting the muscle remaining after the amputation. Rerouting nerves to some of these remaining muscles allows the patient to generate additional control signals, thereby improving the functionality of the prosthesis. We showed an improvement of signal-quality of these new control signals over time in two patients, which resulted in more reliable control of their prosthesis.
