A novel analogue circuit for controlling prosthetic hands
At IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference, United States.
This paper presents a compact analogue circuit for the controlling of prosthetic hands. The circuit captures directly surface EMG signals as the input by which the user will be able to select different postures. The proposed circuit is able to work using only one EMG source targeting patients with different levels of amputation. It is also adaptable for different users with different EMG amplitude signals and the motion of each finger can be varied in the circuit even with the single EMG. Real captured EMG signals are applied to the design and simulation results demonstrate the capability of the circuit in processing EMG signals and controlling the prosthetic hand in an efficient way. The circuit is designed and implemented with 0.12?m CMOS technology and consumes 4mW power for a set of sample postures.
