Enzo Mastinu

Enzo Mastinu (S’15) received the M.Sc. degree with top grade in electronic engineering from Università degli Studi di Cagliari, Italy, in 2014. His M.Sc. thesis was awarded at the “Innovation Day Design Contest 2014,” Milan, Italy. During and after the M.Sc. he was HW/FW designer for a spin-off company and a postgraduate research scholarship, respectively. He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree at the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (@ChalmersBNL), Department of Electrical Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology and Integrum AB, both in Gothenburg, Sweden. His research focuses on embedded systems for prosthetic control, mainly regarding upper limb amputees.

    Evaluation of Computer-Based Target Achievement Tests for Myoelectric Control

    Real-time evaluation of novel prosthetic control schemes is critical for translational research on artificial limbs. Recently, two computer-based, real-time evaluation tools, the target achievement control (TAC) test and the Fitts’ law test (FLT), have been proposed to assess real-time controllability. Whereas TAC tests provides an anthropomorphic visual representation of the limb at the cost of confusing visual feedback, FLT clarifies the current and target locations by simplified non-anthropomorphic representations. Here, we investigated these two approaches and quantified differences in common performance metrics that can result from the chosen method of visual feedback.
