The surface myoelectric signal has found many important applications in research and clinical application. Its use as a system input for the control of powered upper-limb prostheses was first proposed almost 60 years ago. This control approach, referred to as myoelectric control, has been a clinically significant option for limb-deficient individuals for 30 years. Myoelectric control has gained widespread use, with many fitting centers worldwide. The sophistication of myoelectric control continues to improve, offering users improvements in dexterity and ease of use. Keywords: prosthesis; myoelectric; control; EMG
