Separate Fingers Recognition

Separate Fingers Recognition

Hello, I am preparing for a project, and I intend using MYO. In my project I will need to recognize every finger gesture separately, will I be able to have this feature using MYO? Or I will need MYO raw data?
The project idea is similar to American Sign Language and/or Prosthetic Hand.
If I should acquire raw EMG data, any help?

Hi, I'm interested in individual finger recognition. Is this possible? Cheers, Jay

Separate Fingers Recognition

We are studying individual finger recognition, but the task is very hard, maybe impossible.
Our aim is to compare angle measurements between an electronic glove equipped with flex sensors and MYO.
We tried a regression model on parameters extracted from MYO raw signals, but so far results are not good.
Key factors are:
1) Signal preprocessing. This paper (DOI: 10.1109/SVR.2016.21) suggests full-wave rectification and mean over 50 samples, because 200 Hz is too fine-grained for hand gestures.
2) Parameter selection. This paper (DOI: 10.1109/ELECSYM.2015.7380805) suggests five parameters.
Have you any idea? The matter is troublesome.
