AbstractDual-channel evaluation of surface electromyogram (SEMG) signals acquired from amputee subjects using computational techniques for classification of arm motions is presented in this study. SEMG signals were classified by the neural network (NN) and interpretation was done using statistical techniques to extract the effectiveness of the recorded signals. From the results, it was observed that there exists a calculative difference in amplitude gain across different motions and that SEMG signals have great potential to classify arm motions. The outcomes indicated that the NN algorithm performs significantly better than other algorithms, with a classification rate (CR) of 96.40%. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) presents the results to validate the effectiveness of the recorded data to discriminate SEMG signals. The results are of significant thrust in identifying the operations that can be implemented for classifying upper-limb movements suitable for prostheses’ design.
