Electromyogram (EMG) signal can be defined as the electrical activity of muscles cells. It is commonly used in motion recognition, treatment of neuromuscular disorders and prosthetic hand control. In this study, classification of EMG signals obtained from 6 different hand shapes of holding object was proposed. At first Short Time Fourier Transform of the EMG signal were evaluated to obtain their Time-Frekans representation. After than these T-F images were segmented and their mean values were evaluated to reduce the dimension of the images. Local Receptive Fields based Extreme Learning Machines (ELM-LRF) used to classification of these hand shapes of holding object. Evaluated accuracy is 94.12 %.
