Figure 1

Overview of a myokinetic control interface for a prosthetic hand. Magnetic markers are implanted in relevant wrist muscles and extrinsic muscles of the hand; the voluntary contractions of these muscles are monitored by the localizer which estimates the position of the magnetic markers. This information is used to control the physiologically appropriate degree of freedom of the prosthetic wrist and hand in a direct and proportional manner.
