In this work we focus on pattern recognition methods related to EMG upper-limb prosthetic control. After giving a detailed review of the most widely used classification methods, we propose a new classification approach. It comes as a result of comparison in the Fourier analysis between able-bodied and trans-radial amputee subjects. We thus suggest a different classification method which considers each surface electrodes contribute separately, together with five time domain features, obtaining an average classification accuracy equals to 75% on a sample of trans-radial amputees. We propose an automatic feature selection procedure as a minimization problem in order to improve the method and its robustness.
