Bioelectrical signals are used more frequently in order to provide an alternative way to command devices, such as myoelectrical signals or electroencephalic signals ‑the last ones used in Brain-Computer Interface applications-. The goal of this paper is using myoelectrical signals to command a robotic upperlimb prosthesis developed as well. The only requirement to be able to use the prosthesis would be to have a voluntary and accurate muscle control. In that way, a training system for prosthesis' future users has been developed in order to train their muscle control.
