In this study, two channels, multifunctional myoelectric prosthesis hand is designed and operated for biomedical and control engineering departments laboratory as experiment apparatus. Various analog signal processing steps are implemented to the surface EMG signals which received on the triceps and biceps muscles. After that signals are conveyed to microcontroller and compared with a threshold value. One function of five different functions is selected by the received signal from triceps muscles and this function is activated by the biceps muscles. The goal of this study is, which includes different types of engineering issues, improving the theoretical and practical knowledge of engineering students.
