The design of multifunctional upper limb prosthetics has been investigated in recent years. Several areas or research need to be developed for successful implementation of dextrous upper limb prosthesis, in particular better EMG interfaces for implementing command languages. This article introduces a novel three-bit EMG command language concept as a user interface for the multifunctional MANUS prosthesis prototype. Following the global approach proposed by MANUS, a training process and the supporting Virtual Reality training software are also presented. The last section describes the evaluation process and the results.
