Research Institution

This project builds on previous research to further develop an implantable myoelectric device that significantly improves upper-limb prosthesis control for amputees with upper-limb prosthesis. In previous studies, researchers created an implantable sensor that listens to muscles from the amputated limb that once controlled arm motions allowing users to control their prostheses similar to an intact limb. During this current project researchers establish focus groups and consult with both clinical and patient end users to draft design input requirements for software development. Outcomes include the successful development of software that allows for an intuitive, simultaneous, multi-joint prothesis control of the implantable myoelectric device significantly improving the quality of life of individuals with upper limb amputation.
