  • Fougner, Anders; Sæther, Marthe; Stavdahl, Øyvind; Kyberd, Peter J.; Blum, Jeremy (Myoelectric Symposium, 2008)
    As multifunction prostheses become increasingly common, there is a need for improved control signal quality in order to control all the functions. Most signals commonly used for prosthesis control are sensitive to sweat, ...
  • Kyberd, Peter J. (Myoelectric Symposium, 1999)
    The principles of hierarchical control ofhand prostheses have been described in previous MEC meetings. Simply put: It is possible to achieve easy use of a multi-axial artificial hand if the detailed control of the hand's ...
  • Stavdahl, Øyvind; Kyberd, Peter J.; Magne, Tordis; Ottermo, Maria V.; Mugaas, Terje (Myoelectric Symposium, 2011)
    In myoelectric prostheses, movement artifacts are known to impair control performance. This study relates to a novel sensor which measures surface electromyograms (SEMG) as well as contact force at the electrode-skin ...
  • Kyberd, Peter J.; Gow, David; Sperling, Lena; Boman, Andreas (Myoelectric Symposium, 1999)
    While some groups and centres have attempted to promote greater levels of sophistication in exo-prosthetics it is only in the past couple of year s that the ideas of computer control to be applied in prostheses has received ...
  • Taffler, Sean; Kyberd, Peter J. (Myoelectric Symposium, 1999)
    This paper describes the use of Fuzzy logic for the processing of EMG signals. This can increase the recognition rate and significantly reduce the number of computations required to generate an output. The initial placement ...
  • Taffler, Sean; Kyberd, Peter J. (Myoelectric Symposium, 1999)
    The Fourier transform has traditionally been used for the detailed analysis of EMG signals. This has yielded many useful results, none more so than the descriptions of the energy produced at differing frequencies. This has ...
  • Bouwsema, Hanneke; Kyberd, Peter J.; Hill, Wendy; van der Sluis, Corry K.; Bongers, Raoul M. (Myoelectric Symposium, 2011)
    Most studies on prosthesis usage focus merely on one type of outcome measures, using questionnaires, functional tests, or kinematics. However, a combination of several outcome measures should provide a better picture on ...
