SOPHT: Soft Prosthetic HandPublic Deposited
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project aims to create a bone-in soft prosthetic hand that closely mimics human hand movements and sensations using a combination of hardware and software components. Our soft robotic hand achieves segmented finger motion through different actuation methods including pneumatic actuators, cable pulleys, and rotational actuators, and it has a compliant grip and realistic appearance using a silicone glove. In addition, the hand has three degrees of freedom at the wrist, provided by three linear actuators forming a tripod parallel mechanism. Overall, this project represents a significant advancement in prosthetic hand development.
