Abstract

The long-term robustness of pattern recognition-based myoelectric systems draws more attention from researchers. Though, there is a lack of analysis investigating how features change over time. This study used two metrics: Coefficient of variation of the first four moments (CoV) and Two-Sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test statistics (K-S); to quantify the stability of feature distributions and correlate their changes over time to classification performance. We acquired two surface electromyography (sEMG) channels from sixteen subjects (ten able-bodied and six trans-radial amputees) performing three hand motions. Results showed that the selected metrics correlate to some degree to classification accuracy. Feature distributions are affected less by the time when data are combined. These results imply that stable temporal change may be an acceptable way to choose robust features in long term investigations.
