Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) The EMG controlled prosthesis is one application of the user-interface with surface electro myography(EMG). Because the surface EMG vary from individual person to person, it is very difficult to control this kind of prosthesis (almost one month of training is needed). To overcome this problem, we develop such prosthesis whose controller can be adapt to the characteristics of an individual person's surface EMG.In this adaptation, the Evolvable Hardware(EHW)is used for the controller of the prosthesis.
