Abstract : This program will develop a control system that provides amputees outfitted with high-channel-count myoelectric signal monitoring systems, simultaneous use of multiple degrees of freedom (DOF) of a prosthetic limb. The program will also develop software and hardware tools prosthetists can use to adjust controller behavior to maximize limb function for each patient. The main strength of this program is that it combines basic research with existing, proven technology to provide novel rehabilitation strategies that meet a critical need in the military and civilian upper-limb amputee population.
