Design of Variable Stiffness joints for Upper-Limb prosthetics

28.07.2022, 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.

This project consists of the design and development of a new prosthetic joint that provides users with variable stiffness levels for a better adaptation to external requirements.

Technical requirements:
Knowledge of CAD design and biomechanics.
