The acquisition of myoelectric signals from the Musculus deltoideus of a rhesus monkey is described. Such signals are aimed to be used as control signal for an active myoelectric hand prosthesis. For recording, implantable flexible, polyimide-based multi-site microelectrodes were placed epimysially on the muscle. EMG signals were recorded during voluntary goal-directed movements of the arm, and analyzed with respect to signal amplitude and frequency.
