- Implantable myoelectric sensors (IMESs) for intramuscular electromyogram recordingRichard F ff Weir
Biomechatronics Development Laboratory, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60611, USA
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 56:159-71. 2009..We have a fully operational system. The system has been tested in animals. Implants have been chronically implanted in the legs of three cats and are still completely operational four months after implantation...
- Activation of individual extrinsic thumb muscles and compartments of extrinsic finger musclesJ Alexander Birdwell
Center for Bionic Medicine, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois
J Neurophysiol 110:1385-92. 2013..This work is encouraging for the neural control of prosthetic limbs because these muscles and compartments may potentially serve as additional user inputs to command prostheses. ..
- A comparison of the effects of electrode implantation and targeting on pattern classification accuracy for prosthesis controlTodd R Farrell
Department of Biomedical Engineering, McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
IEEE Trans Biomed Eng 55:2198-211. 2008..It was concluded that the choice of electrode should be driven by clinical factors, such as signal robustness/stability, cost, etc., instead of by classification accuracy...
- Quantification of isolated muscle compartment activity in extrinsic finger muscles for potential prosthesis control sitesJ Alexander Birdwell
Center for Bionic Medicine, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL 60611, USA j birdwell northwestern edu
Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc 2011:4104-7. 2011..A cross-correlation threshold was used to verify that simultaneously measured EMG signals were free from crosstalk and were therefore attributed to muscle co-activations...
- A heuristic fuzzy logic approach to EMG pattern recognition for multifunctional prosthesis controlAbidemi Bolu Ajiboye
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center and Prosthetic Research Laboratory, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL 60611, USA
IEEE Trans Neural Syst Rehabil Eng 13:280-91. 2005..This functionality allows for seamless control of multiple degrees-of-freedom in a multifunctional prosthesis...
