The article considers the information systems on the basis of electromyography (EMG). The purpose of multilevel structure processing EMG signals is to collect the information from the movement of the wrist joint and define the type of motion with the use of a classifier based on fuzzy logic. Classifier type movements of the wrist joint showed high accuracy (probability) recognition up to 93% in real-time. The structure of the hardware and software system for data analysis electromyography and algorithms for the detection of movements can be used for both laboratory research and for prototyping systems exoskeleton biofeedback devices.
