Technological advances in multi-articulated prosthetic hands have outpaced the development of methods to intuitively control these devices. In fact, prosthetic users often cite "difficulty of use" as a key contributing factor for abandoning their prostheses. To overcome the limitations of the currently pervasive myoelectric control strategies, namely unintuitive proportional control of multiple degrees-of-freedom, we propose a novel approach: proprioceptive sonomyographic control. Unlike myoelec...

Objective: The objectives of this paper are to determine the optimal location for ultrasound transducer placement on the anterior forearm for imaging maximum muscle deformations during different hand motions and to investigate the effect of using a sparse set of ultrasound scanlines for motion classification for ultrasound-based muscle computer interfaces (MCIs). Methods: The optimal placement of the ultrasound transducer along the forearm is identified using freehand 3D reconstructions of the m...

Technological advances in multi-articulated prosthetic hands have outpaced the methods available to amputees to intuitively control these devices. Amputees often cite difficulty of use as a key contributing factor for abandoning their prosthesis, creating a pressing need for improved control technology. A major challenge of traditional myoelectric control strategies using surface electromyography electrodes has been the difficulty in achieving intuitive and robust proportional control of multipl...

Introduction/Background Recent studies have shown that unintuitive control is a key factor leading to upper-extremity, myoelectric prostheses abandonment. We have developed a non-invasive modality to extract proportional control signals in the residuum using ultrasound imaging. In this study, we investigate the performance of this technology in upper-extremity amputees. Material and method We recruited 4 amputee subjects ( Table 1 ) who currently use myoelectric prostheses. Subjects were instrum...

Ultrasound (US) imaging systems have undergone substantial miniaturization recently and have given rise to many potential applications where battery-based operation is desirable. However, current clinical US systems utilizing pulse-echo imaging require high voltage and short duration transmit pulses along with electronics that operate in the MHz frequency range. As an alternative, we have developed an imaging method that employs time-delay spectrometry (TDS), and uses low-voltage (∼5V peak-to-pe...

In ophthalmic anesthesia administration prior to surgeries for problems such as cataracts or glaucoma, the training of new doctors, as in other surgical specialties, is based on a model in which a student trains on a patient under the expert supervision of an experienced doctor. However, the traditional apprenticeship approach is problematic in eye surgery because ocular structures could potentially be damaged by those administering ophthalmic anesthesia for the first time. Apart from the obviou...
