Mr. John Chiodini, Software Engineer at Delsys and Altec Inc., will be presenting his M.S. thesis on “Discriminating non-stationary Motor Unit Action Potential shapes in dynamically varying surface EMG signals”.
This talk will describe a transcutaneous nerve stimulation technique that targets major nerve bundles innervating different finger muscles, which can elicit a variety of finger grasp patterns by selectively activating different intrinsic and extrinsic finger muscles. High-density electromyography was used to evaluate the elicited muscle activation patterns (spatial and temporal), in comparison with conventional stimulation approaches.
