Zero-phase modeling and canceling of tremor can improve precision in human-machine control applications. The weighted-frequency Fourier linear combiner (WFLC) is an adaptive noise cancellor that precisely model tremor with zero phase lag. This paper presents the WFLC algorithm and describes its application to computer input filtering, clinical tremor quantification, and active tremor canceling for microsurgery.
