Sensing and Control for Prosthetic Hands in Clinical and Research Applications

Wearable Robotics


Abstract

From gross movements to object grasping and fine manipulation our arms and hands play an obviously valuable role in our daily lives. The movement of our hands, combined with our sophisticated sense of touch, enables us to seamlessly interact with our environment. The loss of a limb presents a difficult challenge in that much of the basic functionality we rely on as humans is no longer available in the same way. The use of prosthetic hands has proven to be a viable option for replacing a lost or missing hand.
