Table 2 Instructions to participants for each round of movement without grasping and each round of grasp and move activity

From: A preliminary investigation on the utility of temporal features of Force Myography in the two-class problem of grasp vs. no-grasp in the presence of upper-extremity movements

Type Instructions to participant
Movement without grasping Move from neutral to origin position, and then to target position before returning to neutral. Subsequently move from neutral to target position, and then to origin position before returning to neutral. Repeat across eight target locations, resulting in sixteen movement actions
Grasp and move Move from neutral to origin position, grasp and pick-up object, move object, place and release object at target position, before returning hand to neutral. Subsequently move from neutral to previous target position, grasp and pick-up object, move object, place and release object at origin position, before returning hand to neutral.
