Abstract: The aim of the study is to generate control signals from surface Electromyography signals (EMGs) measured from four hand muscles; Extensor carpi radialis, Palmaris longus, Pronator quadratus and Flexor digitorum superficialis to navigate a prosthetic hand.
In supine position with arm in the side table via volar approach under fluoroscopic guidance between palmaris longus and flexor carpi radialis the wrist was opened.
About 85% of people have what is called a palmaris longus, a vestigial muscle running from the elbow to the heel of the hand.
Therefore the suture of the FDS was reinforced with a palmaris longus tendon graft.
FCR normally lies radial to the Palmaris Longus (PL) at the level of the wrist and enters a fibroosseous tunnel just proximal to the trapezium.
These factors include the presence of secondary impairments, the strength of the long flexors and/or the donor tendon, hypermobile joints of digits, the presence or absence of palmaris longus muscles, short or long fingers, heavy or light work, and dominant or non-dominant hand.

We mapped excursion of the palmaris longus tendon to the opening-and-closing angle of the electromechanical hand: full flexion of the wrist to achieve full closure of the mechanical hand and full extension of the wrist to achieve full opening of the mechanical hand.
Previa asepsia y antisepsia de la extremidad, se realiza por la cara volar la incision desde el tercio distal del antebrazo en linea media entre el flexor carpis radialis y palmaris longus hasta la linea de Kaplan (fig.
