This paper presents a novel control scheme for new advanced hand prostheses implementing multiple pinches and grasps. The control signals for the hand are determined by myoelectric signals from the arm and volitionally generated signals by tongue through an inductive interface with a mouth piece. The feasibility tests have been performed on an able-bodied subject who controller a virtual reality hand. Results suggest that this hybrid control scheme works well, it is intuitive and the subject learned fast to use it, and what is most important provides many more control channel to advanced hand prostheses. This research is being continued in healthy subjects with the intention to translate the results to patients.
