Current prosthetic hands have limited functionality and are cost prohibitive. A design of a cost effective anthropomorphic prosthetic hand was created. The novel design incorporates five individually actuated fingers in addition to powered thumb roll articulation, which is unseen in commercial products. Fingertip grip force is displayed via LEDs for feedback control. The hand contains a battery and micro-controller. Multiple options for signal input and control algorithms are presented. A prototype will serve as a platform for future programming efforts. Learn more...
