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 ...
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) ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
