Abstract / Description of output

We present a network-enabled myoelectric platform for performing research outside of the laboratory environment. A low-cost, flexible, modular design based on common Internet of Things connectivity technology allows home-based research to be piloted. An outline of the platform is presented followed by technical results obtained from ten days of home-based tests with three participants. Results show the system enabled collection of close to 12,000 trials during around 28 cumulative hours of use. Home-based testing of multiple participants in parallel offers efficiency gains and provides a intuitive route toward long-term testing of upper-limb prosthetic devices in more naturalistic settings.Clinical relevance— In-home myoelectric training reduces clinician time. Network-enabled systems with back-end dashboards allow clinicians to monitor patients myoelectric ability over time and will provide a new way of accessing information about how upper-limb prosthetics are commonly used.
