AbstractArtificial limb control (ALC) system is a tool for helping patients to control their prosthetic limb.
To bring the most safety and the most convenience to the patients, a wireless
interface between the prosthesis and PC is required. In this thesis, the possibility to integrate
the wireless module to the ALC system was investigated. The available wireless
modules in the market was compared and selected. Bluetooth and WiFi technology was
studied. Selected WiFi and Bluetooth modules were tested by testing protocol to evaluate
the performance and the limitation of the modules. A hardware for implementing
both wireless modules was prepared and built. The wireless solution was integrated into
the ALC system and tested with a full recording session in BioPatRec platform. WiFi
allowed the raw EMG signal to be transmitted correctly. In contrast, Bluetooth is not
suggested for transmitting raw EMG signals for more than 4 channels or 256 kbps.
However, it has been proven that for data rate up to 128 kbps, Bluetooth works correctly
and may be alternatively solution for transmitting the signal feature instead.
