Abstract: Neural networks are increasingly being used in medical settings to support medical practitioners and researchers in performing their work. In the field of prosthetics for amputees, sensors can be used to monitor the activity of remaining muscle and ultimately control prosthetic limbs. In this work, we present an approach to identify the location of intramuscular electromyograph sensors percutaneously implanted in extrinsic muscles of the forearm controlling the fingers and wrist during single digit movements. A major challenge is to confirm whether each sensor is placed in the targeted muscle, as this information can be critical in developing and implementing control systems for prosthetic limbs. We propose an automated approach, based on artificial neural networks, to identify the correct placement of an individual sensor. Our approach can provide feedback on each placed sensor, so researchers can validate the source of each signal before performing their data analysis.
