Master Thesis/ Internship

Mechanical design of a poly-articulated prosthetic hand

25.06.2022, Diplomarbeiten, Bachelor- und Masterarbeiten

The design of prosthetic limbs has been aimed at reducing the overall weight of the prostheses and mimicking the aesthetics and functions of the lost body parts. Among commercially-available upper-limb prostheses, the two most often used solutions are simple hook-style grippers, and poly-articulated hands, which are closer to biological limbs with a higher number of articulations. Poly-articulated hands afford a wide range of grasp and manipulation types, but require the dexterous control using signals from residual muscles.

Task description:
This thesis proposes a dexterous poly-articulated prosthetic hand that merges soft robotic technologies and investigations about human finger coordination. This hand aims at presenting a simple yet useful design, capable of gross and precise grasping. The combination of under-actuation and soft joints allows to increase the system robustness, the intuitiveness of control and safe interaction while preserving the advantages of poly-articulated hands and multiple grasping capabilities.


Technical requirements:
Knowledge in CAD design and biomechanics.
