High load activities are difficult for trans-humeral amputees due to inadequate mounting methods. The goal of this project was to design, analyze, and manufacture an upper arm exoskeleton for trans-humeral prostheses to allow one to perform high load activities. The prosthesis attachment connects the prosthetic limb to the mechanism transferring loads to a custom vest. Tests have been formulated to confirm functionality of the design. From those tests and problems encountered throughout the design process, recommendations have been made.
