Abstract

Vibrations can be used to convey positional or sensory information to prosthetic users. However, for the feedback to convey information consistently, daily fine-grained adjustments are required. This paper investigates whether vibration dissipation through the muscle can be tracked using EMG with the aim of providing reliable, long-term sensory feedback. The results of this study showed that the magnitude of vibration artifacts can be measured using EMG and used to create a dissipation trend. This trend varies between participants but shows consistency for individuals when measured across multiple days. This novel way of measuring vibration dissipation can potentially be used as a basis for adaptive sensory control in future prosthesis studies.
