Seamless Integrated Textrode-Band for Real-time Lower Limb Movements Classification to Facilitate Self-Administrated Phantom Limb Pain Treatment
Paper in proceedings, 2019

Phantom Motor Execution (PME) is a mechanism-based approach for the treatment of Phantom Limb Pain (PLP), which could potentially be self-administered in the home environment. However, the placement of electrodes aimed to acquire myoelectric signals from the residual stump muscles can be regarded as a difficult and time-consuming process by the patient. Thus, to increase patient compliance, the process must be made easier, faster, and cost effective. In this study, we developed and investigated a seamless integrated textrode-band for myoelectric recordings. The textrode-band can be easily donned/doffed, is reusable and washable. We demonstrated the viability of such concept by analyzing the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), as well as offline and real time motion decoding performance, that in our experience are compatible with the PME treatment.
