This is a new area for me so please be gentle.
The Almond board looks great however it does not seem to have any electronics on it for processing the EMG signals. I've seen several posts regarding hand movement to prosthetic's. Can someone help me on this. Are there additional boards used to pick up the EMG.
From my limited experiments with EMG I find that when one first tenses a muscle you get a spike in the signal, which then returns to the default stream even if the muscle is still tensed. How does the Open Bionic's project get around this. Do you use 2 muscles - one for open and the other for closed. Or have I been misreading my results. I have several EMG/EEG boards incliding the 8 bit OpenBCI and the Myoware board.
Many thanks for any enlightenment you can pass my way.
