Electromyography is useful for those interested in the study of biological signals and their processing, identifying the characteristics of these signals is valuable for the design of prosthetic and robotic systems or in rehabilitation for patients with pathologies of the lower limb. In this case, in particular, the EMG signals of the biceps femoris generated during the gait cycle are intended to characterize the muscle activation signals during walking. For the development of this database, one hundred users were invited to participate.
Accurate proportional myo-electric control of the hand is important in replicating dexterous manipulation in robot prostheses. Many studies in this field have focused on recording discrete hand gestures, while few have focused on the proportional and multiple-DOF control of the human hand using EMG signals. To aid researchers on advanced myoelectric hand control and estimation, we present this data from our work "Extraction of nonlinear muscle synergies for proportional and simultaneous estimation of finger kinematics".
