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 this year we completed design and testing of the both implant and base-station to show that the final form factors couple the required energy for normal operation and to show that data can be telemetered at the required data rate. Final system testing of 8 implants being wirelessly powered and transmitting data was verified within a transhumeral socket filled with simulated tissue was completed and the data were added to a FDA IDE submission.
