Motor coordination during the pick and lift task for the eEMG (top) and sEMG (bottom) configurations. Grip force vs load force profiles from object contact to lift-off for all subjects and test configurations. None of the configurations promoted coordinated grip-load forces patterns in subjects’ performance. Unexpectedly, sEMG curves revealed a more linear ratio, closer to the mature grasp behavior observed in able-bodied adult humans, even though the instrumented object virtually broke (task failure) considerably more frequently in the sEMG than in the eEMG configuration for S1 and S3
