Abstract

We present updated progress on the design, construction and testing of an upper-extremity prosthesis control system based on implantable myoelectric sensors. The miniature injectable implant consists of a single silicon chip packaged with transmit and receive coils. Preparation for human implantation of the IMES system is underway. As part of this process, critical design improvements in the IMES implant were required. Here we report improved functionality of the IMES implant, hardened protection against electrical malfunction and tissue damage.
