Myoelectric systems allowing for single finger control are used in order to mimic the dexterity of the human hand. The control accuracy of these interfaces is generally tested through offline analysis, even though online testing would be closer to the user’s reality. The advantage of online control is the ability of the user to profit from visual feedback. This results in a continuous, closed sensorimotor loop, allowing the subjects to adapt their control strategy during the movement execution. In this case study of a subject trained on single finger movements suggests that people are able to leverage on this while performing combined finger movements. We further investigated the change in motor control by comparing the muscle maps between force and myoelectric controlled movements.
