Abstract Practical implementation of myoelectric interfaces have been largely hindered by cumbersome training and retraining procedures required for use across multiple days or for multiple users. We thus present a common spatial-spectral analysis (CSSA) framework to eliminate the need for retraining over multiple days or for multiple users. The CSSA is implemented through spectral decomposition and common modes analysis, maximumly utilizing the common spatial-spectral electromyography (EMG) mode from multiple days or for multiple users. Experiments involving two scenarios were conducted to simulate the application of multiday or multiuser myoelectric interface. Eight healthy and three amputee subjects participated in the first experiment for ten consecutive days, and seven healthy subjects participated in the second experiment involving a multiuser interface. Experimental results demonstrated that the control performance without retraining the myoelectric interface with the CSSA was significantly improved, and the classifier model pre-trained by background data under CSSA enabled EMG signals from new days or users to be recognized without training or retraining. The results could serve as a foundation for practical implementation of myoelectric interfaces.

Objective: Myoelectric pattern recognition has been successfully applied as a human-machine interface to control robotic devices such as prostheses and exoskeletons, significantly improving the dexterity of myoelectric control. This study investigates the feasibility of applying myoelectric pattern recognition for controlling a robotic hand in stroke patients. Methods: Myoelectric pattern recognition of six hand motion patterns was performed using forearm electromyogram signals in paretic side o...

Abstract While several studies have demonstrated the short-term performance of pattern recognition systems, long-term investigations are very limited. In this study, we investigated changes in classification performance over time. Ten able-bodied individuals and six amputees took part in this study. EMG signals were recorded concurrently from surface and intramuscular electrodes, with intramuscular electrodes kept in the muscles for seven days. Seven hand motions were evaluated daily using linea...

A single channel surface EMG can be used to detect up to 4 hand gestures.This can be done by a fast support vector machine classification approach.With this system, advanced prosthetic hands can be controlled with a simple HMI.Calibration time is less than 30s and classification time is less than 0.3s. Surface EMGs have been the primary sources for control of prosthetic hands due to their comfort and naturalness. The recent advances in the development of the prosthetic hands with many degrees of...

Performance degradation will be caused by a variety of interfering factors for pattern recognition-based myoelectric control methods in the long term. This paper proposes an adaptive learning method with low computational cost to mitigate the effect in unsupervised adaptive learning scenarios. We presents a particle adaptive classifier (PAC), by constructing a particle adaptive learning strategy and universal incremental least square support vector classifier (LS-SVC). We compared PAC performanc...

The intuitive control of upper-limb prostheses requires a man/machine interface that directly exploits biological signals. Here, we define and experimentally test an offline man/machine interface that takes advantage of the discharge timings of spinal motor neurons. The motor-neuron behaviour is identified by deconvolution of the electrical activity of muscles reinnervated by nerves of a missing limb in patients with amputation at the shoulder or humeral level. We mapped the series of motor-neur...

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...

This paper presents an electromyographic (EMG)-based continuous control scheme including simple classifier for an electric-powered wheelchair, ultimately for quadriplegics. The proposed scheme utilizes three EMG signals as inputs for the muscle–computer interface. Since zygomaticus major muscles and transversus menti muscle of human face are able to move independently as well as to adjust contractile forces voluntarily, the surface EMG signals on these muscles are utilized for the electric-power...

In spite of several decades of intense research and development, the existing algorithms of myoelectric pattern recognition (MPR) are yet to satisfy the criteria that a practical upper extremity prostheses should fulfill. This study focuses on the criterion of the short, or even zero subject training. Due to the inherent nonstationarity in surface electromyography (sEMG) signals, current myoelectric control algorithms usually need to be retrained daily during a multiple days' usage. This study w...

Motor units are the smallest functional units of our movements. The study of their activation provides a window into the mechanisms of neural control of movement in humans. The classic methods for motor unit investigations date to several decades ago. They are based on invasive recordings with selective needle or wire electrodes. Conversely, the noninvasive (surface) EMG has been commonly processed as an interference signal, with the extraction of its global characteristics, e.g., amplitude. The...

Myoelectric pattern recognition algorithms have been proposed for the control of powered lower limb prostheses, but electromyography (EMG) signal disturbances remain an obstacle to clinical implementation. To address this problem, we used a log-likelihood metric to detect simulated EMG disturbances and real disturbances acquired from EMG containing electrode shift. We found that features extracted from disturbed EMG have much lower log likelihoods than those from undisturbed signals and can be d...
