The development of interfaces linking the human nervous system with artificial devices is an important area of research. Several groups are working on the development of devices able to restore sensory-motor function in subjects affected by neurological disorders, injuries or amputations. Neural electrodes implanted in peripheral nervous system, and in particular intrafascicular electrodes, seem to be a promising approach for the control of hand prosthesis thanks to the possibility to selectively access motor and sensory fibers for decoding motor commands and delivering sensory feedback.

Abstract

The development of interfaces linking the human nervous system with artificial devices is an important area of research. Several groups are working on the development of devices able to restore sensory-motor function in subjects affected by neurological disorders, injuries or amputations. Neural electrodes implanted in peripheral nervous system, and in particular intrafascicular electrodes, seem to be a promising approach for the control of hand prosthesis thanks to the possibility to selectively access motor and sensory fibers for decoding motor commands and delivering sensory feedback. In this paper, activities on the use of PNS interfaces for the control of hand prosthesis are presented. In particular, the design and feasibility study of a self-opening neural interface is presented together with the decoding of ENG signals in one amputee to control a dexterous hand prosthesis.
