    • A Comparison Of Upper Limb Prostheses Users In Europe 

      Kyberd, Peter; Gow, David; Scott, Helen; Griffiths, Malcombe; Sperling, Lena; Jänsson, Stewe (1999)
      An important part of the design process is to be able to identify the needs of a target population. Once incorporated into the desigrts the information can then be incorporated in to the measurement of the success of the ...
    • A STUDY OF EMG SIGNALS FROM LIMBS WITH CONGENITAL ABSENCE AND ACQUIRED LOSSES 

      Kyberd, Peter; Taffler, Sean (2002)
      The basic assumption made by the designers of EMG amplifier systems is that the substantial difference between different person's detected EMG signals is the energy generated, but the spectral content is sufficiently similar ...
    • An Overview Of The UNB Hand System 

      Losier, Yves; Clawson, Adam; Wilson, Adam; Scheme, Erik; Englehart, Kevin; Kyberd, Peter; Hudgins, Bernard (2011)
      In 2007, the University of New Brunswick’s (UNB) Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) received funding from the Canadian government’s Atlantic Innovation Fund program to develop a commercially viable and technologically ...
    • Assessment And Validation Of The Unb Test Of Prosthetics Function 

      Karosan, Eric; Kuruganti, Usha; Hill, Wendy; Kyberd, Peter (2011)
      This paper focuses on the assessment and validation of the UNB test of prosthetics function. There is a constant need to stay up to date with forms of assessment, as assistive devices become more intuitive and precise enabling ...
    • IMPROVED CONTROL FOR AN ARTIFICIAL ARM 

      Jones, Ben; Kyberd, Peter (2005)
      Successful control of multi-degree of freedom upper limb prostheses generally uses some form of sequential instruction. This is because simultaneous control of multiple inputs requires a considerable concentration to be ...
    • Upper Limb Prosthetic Outcome Measures (ULPOM) Group 

      Kyberd, Peter; Hill, Wendy (2008)
      In recent years there has been a sea change in the field of hand prosthetics, an increasing number of clinicians and researchers have a desire to be able to objectively measure the functional effectiveness of a prosthesis, ...
