Synthesizing an Artificial Hand for Tasks Requiring Fine Motor ControlPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Fine motor control is essential for independence and quality of life. Through this project, a planar artificial hand was synthesized based on the requirements of a client with a C6 spinal cord injury. Research on existing products was performed and a final design was generated. A prototype was manufactured and tested by the client using an assessment of fine motor control. The results showed a decrease in time necessary to complete a task and an increase in fine motor ability.
