  • Operant Conditioning of Spinal Reflexes for Motor Rehabilitation after CNS Damage

    Spinal reflex behaviors can be changed through operant conditioning, in which modification of a behavior is brought about by the consequence of that behavior. Spinal reflex conditioning can be used to change a spinal reflex pathway so as to ameliorate movement disabilities due to central nervous system (CNS) damage. This chapter demonstrates that operant conditioning can increase or decrease the soleus H-reflex in neurologically intact people, and investigates whether down-conditioning can reduce abnormal soleus H-reflex excitability in people with incomplete SCI and can thereby alleviate spastic gait. Finally, operant conditioning protocols that focus on modifying EEG activity over sensorimotor cortex might conceivably provide an additional approach to improving cortical control of motor function.

  • Applications in Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) is typically applied in musculoskeletal physical therapy for the assessment of disturbed motor control and for monitoring change with rehabilitation. This chapter explores fundamental methods of EMG assessment as a means of evaluating neuromuscular impairment in patients with musculoskeletal disorders with a focus on two of the most common musculoskeletal complaints, namely, low back pain and neck pain. Distinct modifications of the sEMG signal can be identified during sustained voluntary or electrically elicited muscle contractions, and the analysis of myoelectric manifestations of muscle fatigue can provide important information about physiological changes evolving in the muscle. The amplitude of the surface EMG can be estimated by a scheme of demodulation, smoothing, and relinearization. An approach to monitoring the amplitude of activity of muscles with sEMG is to measure tuning curves. The chapter further reviews some of the most frequently applied analyses in musculoskeletal physical therapy research.

  • Conclusions and Future Work

    This chapter presents the conclusions described in the book related to the fusion of hard control strategies such as proportional integral‐derivative (PID), optimal, adaptive, and soft control strategies such as adaptive neuro‐fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), genetic algorithms (GA), particle swarm optimization (PSO), for a robotic or prosthetic hand. Chapter 2 of the book addressed the forward kinematics, inverse kinematics, and differential kinematics models of a serial n revolute‐joint planar two‐link thumb, and three‐link index finger. The fingertip (end‐effector) positions of each finger were derived by forward kinematics. Chapter 3 of the book described the dynamic equations of hand motion successfully derived via Lagrangian approach for two‐link thumb and three‐link fingers using the mathematical model of the actuator by using direct current (DC) motor and mechanical gears.

  • EMG Modeling and Simulation

    This chapter outlines the main components that should be considered in the development of physiologically based models of surface electromyographic (sEMG). One of the challenges in increasing the accuracy of current sEMG models is the correct identification of the model parameters. Parameter identification is particularly difficult for systems such as this in which it is not possible to accurately measure all of the physiological, anatomical, and physical properties of the system. The chapter explores the simulation of intramuscular EMG, in particular for clinical applications. One of the primary purposes of a modeling approach is to identify the mechanisms responsible for experimental observations. A successful EMG model can thereby help the researcher to relate the recorded electrical signal to the underlying processes associated with muscle contraction. Model validation remains one of the most challenging areas in EMG modeling.

  • Myoelectric Prostheses and Targeted Reinnervation

    A number of factors have led to a resurgence of myoelectric control research since the early 2000s. First, low-power electronics have developed to the point where multichannel pattern recognition algorithms can readily be implemented on an embedded system. Second, due to a large number of high-level amputees resulting from recent military conflicts, governments have initiated well-funded programs to improve neural interfaces for prosthetics. Finally, new and innovative neural¿¿-¿¿machine interfaces, such as targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR), have been developed to provide a rich source of neural information from which control signals can be derived. This chapter provides an overview of existing myoelectric control strategies, highlighting the benefits and limitations of both conventional and pattern recognition techniques, and TMR. The chapter concludes with a summary of exciting emerging technologies that have the potential to further enhance the field of myoelectric control.

  • EMG and Posture in Its Narrowest Sense

    Surface electromyography (sEMG) has been used to identify which muscles could possibly have a significant postural role. Typically, such postural role is inspected by recording surface EMGs from different muscles when subjects sustain their body in different postures. The activation of different skeletal muscles can be well characterized for a specific posture. This chapter deals with electromyographic studies of the human standing posture. Some perturbations might be designed to reveal what happens in quiet standing. These perturbations have magnitude and bandwidth comparable to that of the spontaneous sways occurring in standing. The chapter highlights some standing- like-perturbation protocols that have been considered to investigate key aspects of the system controlling the human standing posture. It provides recent insights into the physiological interpretation of surface EMGs recorded from the pinnate gastrocnemius muscle during quiet standing. The chapter also outlines the high-density surface EMG (HDsEMG).

  • Muscle Coordination, Motor Synergies, and Primitives from Surface EMG

    To investigate neural control strategies, muscle activity must be measured during motor behavior. Recent advances in the investigation of the neural control of movement have led to a re-examination of the mechanisms of sensorimotor integration in the central nervous system (CNS) and in the spinal circuitry in particular. This chapter considers different approaches used to uncover the modular organization of the motor output in human behaviors such as responding to postural perturbations, reaching with the arm, and locomotion, as well as its plasticity and flexibility in movement disorders. It also investigates the strategies that the CNS employs to coordinate the activation of many muscles start from electromyographic (EMG) signals recorded simultaneously from many muscles. Different muscle synergies models are used to decompose the EMG envelopes using appropriate factorization algorithms. The chapter further considers the spatiotemporal organization of the activity patterns of leg and trunk muscles during locomotion.

  • Surface EMG in Ergonomics and Occupational Medicine

    Prevention of musculoskeletal disorders is one of the main goals in ergonomics. The development of methods to quantify muscle force, fatigue, and muscle involvement in a work task is important for this purpose surface electromyography (sEMG) and kinematic measurements are the main tools for the quantitative evaluation of risks related to work activity. The literature regarding the potential of sEMG techniques in ergonomic studies is extensive and concerns many applications, some of which are listed: work at display terminals and office workstations, production line workstations, work with surgical workstations and workspace optimization. Surface EMG has a remarkable potential role in the prevention, monitoring, documentation, and possibly treatment of work related disorders. Insufficient research funding and standardization efforts are still limiting its applications. Much greater research efforts are required to transform its potential into a practical technique with clinical and legal relevance and economic impact on work health.

  • Single-Channel Techniques for Information Extraction from the Surface EMG Signal

    This chapter describes some of the most commonly used techniques for processing single-channel surface electromyographic (sEMG) signals. The single-channel techniques address the interference pattern that results from the simultaneous activation of many motor units (MUs). The chapter reviews spectral estimation and traditional stochastic models applicable to the electromyographic (EMG) signal. These models are used to develop, interpret, and test most of the signal processing techniques. EMG amplitude estimates have been assessed via a common application: the use of surface EMG to estimate joint torques. The chapter explores the basic body of knowledge concerning EMG spectral analysis and how physiological parameters are reflected by surface EMG power spectra. It further focuses on the theoretical basis for the assessment of muscle fatigue during high-intensity isometric constant force contractions since this assessment is by far the most prevalent application of surface EMG spectral analysis.

  • Introduction

    This chapter presents introductory material on relevance to military, overview of control strategies, fusion of hard and soft control strategies, and summary of the remaining chapters of the book "Fusion of Hard and Soft Control Strategies for the Robotic Hand." The proposed book is an outgrowth of the interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences and Engineering (BMSE) research project exemplifying "The Third Revolution: The Convergence of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Engineering." Bio‐Revolution is one of the eight strategic research thrusts that DARPA is emphasizing in response to emerging trends and national security. Electromyographic (EMG) signal is a simple and easily obtainable source of information about various movements to be used for artificial or prosthetic hand. A probabilistic model of the EMG pattern was formulated in the feature space of integral absolute value (IAV) to provide the relation between a command, represented by motion and speed variables, and the location and shape of the pattern for real‐time control of a prosthetic or robotic arm.
