A MYOELECTRICALLY CONTROLLED PROSTHETIC HAND FOR TRANSMETACARPAL AMPUTATIONS.
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) ...
Development of myoelectric controllers for hand prostheses
This paper describes a research project at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) to develop a myoelectric controller. The myoelectric controller interprets control intentions from the ...
Development of a Clinically Viable Multifunctional Underactuated Hand Prosthesis Using Differential Transmissions
We are now in the process of developing a multifunctional prosthetic hand that uses six commercially available DC electric motors and transmissions in an under-actuated system to drive 16 degrees of motion. Providing greater ...
DESIGN OF A CLINICALLY VIABLE MULTIFUNCTIONAL PROSTHETIC HAND.
We are in the process developing a new multifunctional hand mechanism in the hopes of providing a new mechanism that will have superior function over today’s single degree-offreedom (DOF) mechanisms and yet be clinically ...
EVALUATION OF A PROTOTYPE ELECTRIC-POWERED PARTIAL-HAND PROSTHESIS
A prototype partial hand mechanism has been developed for fittings at the trans-metacarpal level. Subjects selected for evaluation of the prototype device have absence of all fingers of the affected hand, all or some portion ...
