New upper limb prostheses controllers are continuously being proposed in the literature. However, most of the prostheses commonly used in the real world are based on very old basic controllers. One reason to explain this reluctance to change is the lack of robustness. Traditional controllers have been validated by many users and years, so the introduction of a new controller paradigm requires a lot of strong evidence of a robust behavior. In this work, we approach the robustness against donning/...

State-of-the-art high-end prostheses are electro-mechanically able to provide a great variety of movements. Nevertheless, in order to functionally replace a human limb, it is essential that each movement is properly controlled. This is the goal of prosthesis control, which has become a growing research field in the last decades, with the ultimate goal of reproducing biological limb control. Therefore, exploration and development of prosthesis control are crucial to improve many aspects of an amp...

In proportional myographic control, one can control either position or velocity of movement. Here, we propose to use adaptive auto-regressive filters, so as to gradually adjust between the two. We implemented this in an adaptive system with closed-loop feedback, where both the user and the machine simultaneously attempt to follow a cursor on a 2-D arena. We tested this on 15 able-bodied and three limb-deficient participants using an eight-channel myoelectric armband. The human–machine pairs lear...
