We propose a low-cost EMG Graphical User Interface (GUI) controller for robotic hand, which is based on combining a wearable ElectroMyoGraphic (EMG) MyoWare sensor with a 5-fingers under-actuated Open Bionics Robotic Hand and a customized software. The implementation of the controlling GUI allows performing grasping configuration of the hand and real-time visualization of the EMG signal driving the hand activation. A set of preliminary test and validation shows the proper functioning of the system and suggest the possibility of developing very low-cost upper limb prosthetics for dexterous recovery of amputees.
