TAKE-HOME TRIAL OF THE GLIDE HAND AND WRIST MYOELECTRIC CONTROL ALGORITHM: A CASE STUDY
One of the most exciting developments in the field relates to the mechatronic advances which have enabled the creation of dexterous terminal devices, wrist rotators and powered elbows. However, their clinical impact has been limited by a lack of effective myoelectric control strategies. To address this challenge, we have developed a novel control strategy based on the Postural Control algorithm, which we call the Glide Controller. In this paper, we describe the first clinical fitting of the Glide system and present qualitative results on the fitting outcomes. We also discuss the implications of this control strategy from a patient and clinician perspective.
