● ABSTRACT: An artificial arm capable of performing several different movements requires a means of control. One possible method is to use the myoelectric signals produced by contraction of existing muscles on the patient's body. The authors investigate the feasibility of using a single muscle to give two commands-`on' or `off'-depending on its signal level. Apparatus was built for controlling a gas-powered prosthesis by commands through a two signal level control system. Twelve muscle sites were found to be usable, and subjects easily learned how to produce the two signal levels voluntarily.
