dc.description.abstract We have developed a new externally-powered, myoelectrically controlled partial hand prosthesis that is suitable for fitting those persons with amputations at or more proximal to the level of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint. This hand mechanism is capable of reasonable pinch forces (12 lbsf) and fast opening and closing (2 rads/sec). In a partial hand mechanism there is very little space available for the drive mechanism if an aesthetic result is to be achieved and any residual motion of the wrist is to be preserved. The challenge is to be able to fit all the requisite mechanisms and electronics in the highly confined volume that remains after accommodating the residual limb and still have reasonable performance. en_US
