Abstract
Towards the real-world application of multifunctional prostheses based on electromyography (EMG) signal, an unsupervised adaptive myoelectric control approach was presented in order to improve the long-time classification performance of EMG pattern recognition. The widely-used linear discriminant analysis (LDA) was improved to three new different classifiers separately termed as linear discriminant analysis with single pattern updating (SPLDA), linear discriminant analysis with multiple patterns updating (MPLDA), and linear discriminant analysis with selected data updating (SDLDA). The experimental result showed that the three new classifiers significantly outperformed the original version. MPLDA and SDLDA provided two different methods to decrease the influence of misclassification and got lower classification error rates than SPLDA. Strategies to decrease the influence of misclassification are the key to the application of unsupervised myoelectric control in the future.

This paper describes a novel pattern recognition based myoelectric control system that uses parallel binary classification and class specific thresholds. The system was designed with an intuitive configuration interface, similar to existing conventional myoelectric control systems. The system was assessed quantitatively with a classification error metric and functionally with a clothespin test implemented in a virtual environment. For each case, the proposed system was compared to a state-of-the...

Pattern recognition is a useful tool for deciphering movement intent from myoelectric signals. Recognition paradigms must adapt with the user in order to be clinically viable over time. Most existing paradigms are static, although two forms of adaptation have received limited attention. Supervised adaptation can achieve high accuracy since the intended class is known, but at the cost of repeated cumbersome training sessions. Unsupervised adaptation attempts to achieve high accuracy without knowl...

In this paper we evaluate the performance of a new adaptive classifier for the use within a brain computer-interface (BCI). The classifier can either be adaptive in a completely unsupervised manner or using unsupervised adaptation in conjunction with a neuronal evaluation signal to improve adaptation. The first variant, termed adaptive linear discriminant analysis (ALDA), updates mean values as well as covariances of the class distributions continuously in time. In simulated as well as experimen...

Abstract Progress in myoelectric control technology has over the years been incremental, due in part to the alternating focus of the R&D between control methodology and device hardware. The technology has over the past 50 years or so moved from single muscle control of a single prosthesis function to muscle group activity control of multifunction prostheses. Central to these changes have been developments in the means of extracting information from the myoelectric signal. This paper gives an ove...

This paper represents an ongoing investigation of dexterous and natural control of upper extremity prostheses using the myoelectric signal (MES). The scheme described within uses pattern recognition to process four channels of MES, with the task of discriminating multiple classes of limb movement. The method does not require segmentation of the MES data, allowing a continuous stream of class decisions to be delivered to a prosthetic device. It is shown in this paper that, by exploiting the proce...

This paper proposes a human-assisting manipulator teleoperated by electromyographic (EMG) signals and arm motions. The proposed method can realize a new master-slave manipulator system that uses no mechanical master controller. A person whose forearm has been amputated can use this manipulator as a personal assistant for desktop work. The control system consists of a hand and wrist control part and an arm control part. The hand and wrist control part selects an active joint in the manipulator's ...

The human hand is a complex system, with a large number of degrees of freedom (DoFs), sensors embedded in its structure, actuators and tendons, and a complex hierarchical control. Despite this complexity, the efforts required to the user to carry out the different movements is quite small (albeit after an appropriate and lengthy training). On the contrary, prosthetic hands are just a pale replication of the natural hand, with significantly reduced grasping capabilities and no sensory information...

A novel approach to the control of a multifunction prosthesis based on the classification of myoelectric patterns is described. It is shown that the myoelectric signal exhibits a deterministic structure during the initial phase of a muscle contraction. Features are extracted from several time segments of the myoelectric signal to preserve pattern structure. These features are then classified using an artificial neural network. The control signals are derived from natural contraction patterns whi...

Electromyography (EMG) is the process of measuring the electrical activity produced by muscles throughout the body using electrodes on the surface of the skin or inserted in the muscle. EMG pattern recognition based myoelectric control systems typically contain data pre-processing, data segmentation, feature extraction, dimensionality reduction, and classification. The real challenge for prostheses and gesture recognition interfaces are the dynamic factors that invoke changes in EMG signal chara...

With the availability of high-density (HD) electrodes technology, the electrodes used in myoelectric control can have much higher density than the current practice. In this study, we investigated the effects of electrode density on pattern recognition (PR) based myoelectric control. Four density levels were analyzed in two directions: parallel and perpendicular to muscle fibers. Their influence on PR-based myoelectric control algorithms was investigated under three conditions between training an...

Fundamental changes over time of surface EMG signal characteristics are a challenge for myocontrol algorithms controlling prosthetic devices. These changes are generally caused by electrode shifts after donning and doffing, sweating, additional weight or varying arm positions, which results in a change of the signal distribution - a scenario often referred to as covariate shift. A substantial decrease in classification accuracy due to these factors hinders the possibility to directly translate E...

Surface electromyography EMG is widely investigated in human-machine interface HMI by decoding movement intention to intuitively control intelligent devices. Mechanomyogram MMG is the mechanical vibration signal produced by contracting muscles, and is also useful tool for intuitive HMI. Combining EMG and MMG together would provide more comprehensive information of muscle activities. This paper presents a hybrid EMG and MMG acquisition system to capture these two signals simultaneously. Experimen...

Electromyography EMG is well suited for capturing static hand features involving relatively long and stable muscle activations. At the same time, inertial sensing can inherently capture dynamic features related to hand rotation and translation. This paper introduces a hand gesture recognition wristband based on combined EMG and IMU signals. Preliminary testing was performed on four healthy subjects to evaluate a classification algorithm for identifying four surface pressing gestures at two force...

This study presented a closed-loop adaptive calibration (CLAC) scheme where subjects could get instantaneous feedback of their movements and alter their motions immediately to update the model parameters to enhance its ability. The real-time performance was compared between the conventional open-loop calibration (OLC) and the presented CLAC based on three metrics (motion-selection time, motion-completion time and motion-completion rate). The CLAC performed slightly better than the OLC, but the d...

Myoelectric control of a prosthetic hand with more than one degree of freedom (DoF) is challenging, and clinically available techniques require a sequential actuation of the DoFs. Simultaneous and proportional control of multiple DoFs is possible with regression-based approaches allowing for fluent and natural movements. Conventionally, the regressor is calibrated in an open-loop with training based on recorded data and the performance is evaluated subsequently. For individuals with amputation o...

On-body interaction techniques are gaining traction, and opening up new avenues to control interactive systems. At the same time, they reveal potential to increase the accessibility of systems like touch based smartphones and other mobile devices for visually impaired users. However, for this potential to be realised, it is paramount that these techniques can be used in a multitude of contextual settings, and, ideally, do not impose training and calibration procedures. Our approach intends to op...

The long-term electromyography (EMG) signal can make significant effect on prosthesis control based on pattern recognition. In this paper, we collected myoelectric signals lasting twelve days and compared the performance of six different features in time and frequency domains. They showed the same tendency and all led to degradation of recognition accuracy over time. Quantification method was used to measure changes in EMG feature space. It showed that distinctness of classes was increased after...

The time-varying character of myoelectric signal usually causes a low classification accuracy in traditional supervised pattern recognition method. In this work, an unsupervised adaptation strategy of linear discriminant analysis (ALDA) based on probability weighting and cycle substitution was suggested in order to improve the performance of electromyography (EMG)-based motion classification in multifunctional myoelectric prostheses control in changing environment. The adaptation procedure was f...
