We are developing a multichannel/multifunction prosthetic hand/arm controller system capable of receiving and processing signals from up to sixteen Implanted MyoElectric Sensors (IMES). A BION® II package will house the implantable electrode electronics and associated circuitry. An external prosthesis controller will decipher user intent from telemetry sent over a transcutaneous magnetic link by the implanted electrodes. The same link will provide power for the implanted electrodes. Development of such a system will greatly increase the number of control sources available to amputees for control of their prostheses. This will encourage the design and fitting of more functional prostheses than are currently available.
