  abstract =     "The acceptance of hand prostheses strongly depends on
                 their user-friendliness and functionality. Current
                 prostheses are limited to a few movements and their
                 operation is all but intuitive. The development of
                 practically applicable multi-movement prostheses
                 requires the combination of modern classification
                 methods with novel techniques for manufacturing high
                 precision sockets.

                 In this paper, we introduce an approach for classifying
                 EMG signals taken from forearm muscles using support
                 vector machines. This classifier technique is used in
                 an adaptive operation mode and customized to the
                 amputee, which allows us to recognize eleven different
                 hand movements with high accuracy. Then, we present a
                 novel manufacturing technique for prosthesis sockets
                 enabling a precise amputee-specific fitting and EMG
                 sensor placement.",
