EMG based Control of Prosthetic Hand for Neurorobotic Interface

Dr. Nouman Naseer

Head of Neurorobotics Research Group,

Air University, Islamabad

Abstract: Neurorobotics is the combined study of neuroscience, robotics and artificially intelligent systems. It can be used to provide a means of communication for people suffering from severe motor disabilities or with limb amputation. This talk with focus on development of electromyography (EMG)-based control of prosthetic hand and electroencephalography (EEG)- and fNIRS-based control of external devices. The talk will be followed by a hands-on workshop on signal processing pipeline of EMG signals using Matlab along with a demo of individual fingers control of a prosthetic hand using EMG.
