Prosthesis Control with an Implantable Multichannel Wireless Electromyography System for High-Level Amputees: A Large-Animal Study Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Jan, 2016 | Pubmed ID: 26710019 Myoelectric prostheses lack a strong human-machine interface, leading to high abandonment rates in upper limb amputees. Implantable wireless electromyography systems improve control by recording signals directly from muscle, compared with surface electromyography. These devices do not exist for high amputation levels. In this article, the authors present an implantable wireless electromyography system for these scenarios tested in Merino sheep for 4 months.
Automated Muscle Fiber Type Population Analysis with ImageJ of Whole Rat Muscles Using Rapid Myosin Heavy Chain Immunohistochemistry Muscle & Nerve. Aug, 2016 | Pubmed ID: 26788932 Skeletal muscle consists of different fiber types which adapt to exercise, aging, disease, or trauma. Here we present a protocol for fast staining, automatic acquisition, and quantification of fiber populations with ImageJ.
