Abstract

This paper presents an integrated EMG-based system for controlling a 5-fingers robotic hand: the system combines two commercial products, namely an Open-Bionics Hand and a wearable MYO controller in a new fashion where the end-user can control different postural grasping through an intuitive menu, cycling among different pre-set grasping configurations. According to preliminary tests, such a solution may represent an interesting novelty for a user-centered experience of patients with an upper limb prosthetic device.
