Live System Demo

Auto-Diagnostic Adaptive Precision Training for Myoelectric Prosthesis users (ADAPT-MP)

Myoelectric prostheses provide advanced capabilities for users with upper limb loss, but such devices require intensive training to effectively operate. The process of remapping limb control often takes amputees many months and can be difficult, leading to many patients abandoning use of the prosthesis. Design Interactive, Inc. developed ADAPT-MP, an interactive, game-based training tool, which consists of a mobile practitioner portal to support multiple-patient monitoring, a mobile, game-based patient tool with wireless EMG sensors to support individual patient training, and a secure server for data communication between the practitioner and patient systems. The games utilize the same inputs that are required for myoelectric control and serve to strengthen underlying musculature, teach muscle isolation, contraction, and series of contractions, using engaging mobile games running on devices the patients already own. The demo will outline the ADAPT-MP system, it’s current application and planned evaluation, and open the conversation to other problem spaces that ADAPT-MP can be applied to in order to improve the healthcare and rehab process.
