Pattern recognition based myoelectric control for upper limb prostheses has gained increasing attention in the last years as it seems to offer more intuitive control than conventional, direct control. However, for such control to be feasible, the prosthesis user needs to have sufficient control of muscle contractions to create EMG patterns suitable for pattern classification. Few studies have investigated the relation between control ability and EMG pattern characteristics and an evaluation tool for quality of EMG patterns is still missing. We proposed such a tool and investigated whether scores from this tool were related to EMG pattern control ability.
