Electromyogram (EMG) signals are produced by the human body and are used in prosthetic design due to their significant functionality with human biomechanics. Engineers are capable of developing a variety of prosthetic limbs with the advancement of technology in the domain of biomedical signal processing, as limb amputees can restore their lives with the help of prosthetic limbs. This current review aimed at determining the signals that are used to monitor the device, explaining the various steps and techniques involved (such as data acquisition, feature vector conversion after noise, and redundant data removal), and reviewing previously developed electromyogram- based prosthetic controls. Furthermore, this study also focuses on a variety of electromyogram- controlled applications

Keywords: EMG signal, feature extraction, prosthetics, signal processing, SEMG, central nervous system.
