Data logging during pattern recognition calibration as a remote diagnostic tool
Pattern recognition control uses EMG from the entire residual limb to more intuitively control prosthetic devices. However, this requires a more intimate socket fit to maintain contact with these additional sensors. When users complain of issues with control, it can be difficult to diagnose if the issue is a need for additional practice and training or if there are issues related to the prosthetic fit that need to be addressed. Pattern recognition does allow the recalibration of the system by the user in any location. By analysing the data logging of calibration data in a pattern recognition system, it is possible to better identify the cause and potential solution in a remote setting.
