Abstract:

The overall project goal is to investigate the functional performance of transhumeral amputees who have received targeted muscle reinnervation with EMG signals measured intramuscularly using a fully wireless implant. During the first year we successfully signed subcontracts with Cirtec Medical and Med Institute, the two companies that are assisting with obtaining the IDE from the FDA. We also successfully completed a first draft of the IRB protocol.
