Myoelectric Control Based on a Generic Musculoskeletal Model: Toward a Multi-User Neural-Machine Interface
This paper aimed to develop a novel electromyography (EMG)-based neural-machine interface (NMI) that is user-generic for continuously predicting coordinated motion between metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and wrist flexion/extension.
Effects of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality on Induced Anxiety
To explore the effects of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) in the treatment of claustrophobia, the potential effects of VR and AR on induced anxiety were investigated in this paper.
Compliant Prosthetic Wrists Entail More Natural Use Than Stiff Wrists During Reaching, Not (Necessarily) During Manipulation
Developing an artificial arm with functions equivalent to those of the human arm is one of the challenging goals of bioengineering. State-of-the-art prostheses lack several degrees of freedom and force the individuals to compensate for them by means of compensatory movements, which often result in residual limb pain and overuse syndromes.
A Novel Validation Approach for High-Density Surface EMG Decomposition in Motor Neuron Disease
This paper presents a novel two-source approach for validating the performance of high-density surface electromyogram (EMG) decomposition. The approach was developed taking advantage of surface EMG characteristics of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
StableEyes—A Portable Vestibular Rehabilitation Device
The vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) is the primary mechanism for stabilizing vision during rapid head movements. We have developed a training technique that typically increases the VOR response a minimum of 15% after 15 mins of training.
The S-Finger: A Synergetic Externally Powered Digit With Tactile Sensing and Feedback
Partial hand amputation is by far the most common type of amputation worldwide. Nevertheless, regardless of their potential clinical and socioeconomic impact, battery-powered partial hand prostheses, namely, powered digits, have modestly progressed so far, and very few clinical solutions are available today.
