Brain–machine interface (BMI) researchers have traditionally focused on modeling endpoint reaching tasks to provide the control of neurally driven prosthetic arms. Most previous research has focused on achieving an endpoint control through a Cartesian-coordinate-centered approach. However, a joint-centered approach could potentially be used to int   ...more

Brain-computer interface (BCI) research has progressed rapidly, with BCIs shifting from animal tests to human demonstrations of controlling computer cursors and even advanced prosthetic limbs, the latter having been the goal of the Revolutionizing Prosthetics (RP) program. These achievements now include direct electrical intracortical microstimula   ...more

In this work, we investigated the use of noninvasive, targeted transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) of peripheral nerves to provide sensory feedback to two amputees, one with targeted sensory reinnervation (TSR) and one without TSR. A major step in developing a closed-loop prosthesis is providing the sense of touch back to the ampute   ...more
