PROGRESS TOWARDS A BIOMIMETIC PROSTHETIC ARM
Detailed design of a prototype prosthetic limb based on biomimetic principles has been completed. This paper will update the progress that has been made toward the creation of a new, high-performance limb. The limb uses ...
Clinical Trials of the new Boston Digital(tm) Arm System
Microprocessor-based controllers for upper-limb powered prostheses have made significant advances over the past few years. These devices allow prosthetists to evaluate the patient and set-up prosthetic controls to optimize ...
IMPROVED CONTROL FOR AN ARTIFICIAL ARM
Successful control of multi-degree of freedom upper limb prostheses generally uses some form of sequential instruction. This is because simultaneous control of multiple inputs requires a considerable concentration to be ...
NEW CONCEPTS IN EXTERNAL POWERED ARM COMPONENTS
An electrically powered joint can be of considerable support for many unilateral or bilateral above elbow amputees in every day activities. The DynamicArm (Photo 1) represents the next evolutionary step, a milestone in powered ...
