Myoelectric control of lower limb prostheses

Project Date 
09/21/2009 - 10/20/2014

Robotic lower limb prostheses require active volitional control approaches in order to increase their function during human movement. We are using surface electromyography to demonstrate that it is feasible to actively control the mechanics of the prostheses. The long-term goal is to use miniature intramuscular electrodes that transmit control signals through the skin to the socket interface.
