Abstract: People who have lost forearm are suffer from hand mobility limitations due to trauma, disease or defect, Prosthesis arm help those people to do their daily actions. Researchers have been focused on developing artificial hand. In this regard, better processing of features of electromyographic (EMG) signal has a significant role from residual forearm muscle. To achieve this, Wavelet Transform (WT) technique has been applied because it is acceptable with the characteristics of EMG as a nonstationary signal. Results have shown that db5 wavelet decomposition performs best denoising at fifth level in other wavelets comparison. Furthermore, the ratio of Signal to Noise (S/N) and the error of percentage (PE) are calculated to evaluate the eminence and the usefulness features of EMG.
