Abstract

There are many people in the world who have lost limbs, and this makes life extremely difficult for them. 1.7 million people in the U.S. have lost a limb, and many prosthetics are uncomfortable, can result in muscle injury, and are expensive. In order to create a functional, less expensive, universal myoelectric hand, the placement of electrodes on the forearm cannot be critical to the detection of muscle electric potential. It was hypothesized that the placement of electrodes is not crucial to the detection of muscle electric potential. Electrodes were placed on thirty subjects of 15-16 years of age, and the muscle electric potential was measured in three different places. The Analysis of Variance test was used to find a difference between any group, and at = 0.10 it was shown that there was no difference,. Therefore the hypothesis that there would be no difference was supported.

There are many people in the world who have lost limbs, and this makes life extremely difficult for them. 1.7 million people in the U.S. have lost a limb, and many prosthetics are uncomfortable, can result in muscle injury, and are expensive. In order to create a functional, less expensive, universal myoelectric hand, the placement of electrodes on the forearm cannot be critical to the detection of muscle electric potential. It was hypothesized that the placement of electrodes is not crucial to the detection of muscle electric potential. Electrodes were placed on thirty subjects of 15-16 years of age, and the muscle electric potential was measured in three different places. The Analysis of Variance test was used to find a difference between any group, and at = 0.10 it was shown that there was no difference,. Therefore the hypothesis that there would be no difference was supported.
