The purpose of this research is to construct an intelligent upper limb prosthesis control system that uses electromyogram (EMG) signals. The signal processing of EMG signals is performed using a linear multiple regression model that can learn parameters in a short time. Using this model, joint angles are predicted, and the motion pattern discrimination is conducted. Discriminated motions were grip, open, and chuck of a hand. Predicted joint angles were multi-finger angles corresponding to these three motions. In several experiments we proved the usefulness of processing EMG signals with a linear multiple regression model.
