Abstract:

Myoelectric EMG signal spectra were investigated and defined for a variety of conditions including different conditions of effort and fatigue. Cardioelectric ECG elimination techniques were investigated. Two experiments with uni-dimensional, graduated myoelectric control simulations were conducted to determine design parameters and human response characteristics. Multi-dimensional myoelectric control experiments were designed on the basis of the results of initial studies. An ancillary study on multi-dimensional control using an electromechanical manipulator was also undertaken. The obtained results indicate that the problem of EMG control is by no means solved.
