Control strategies for a multiple degree of freedom prosthetic hand.
At UKACC Control 2006 Mini Symposia, Glasgow,
Some of the traditional methods used to control a conventional prosthetic device are described alongside the current state of new control techniques and how they may progress. The review includes implantable myoelectric sensors and describes the potential of connecting directly to the peripheral nervous system. Control methods are then deduced for each technique, where the application is a six degrees of freedom hand having integral slip, force and temperature sensors.
