My project, Reciprocal Forearm prosthesis (R.F.P)
My pilot is to fabricate 3D printed below elbow joint prosthesis with a signal acquisition from myoelectric sensor conjoined with accelerometer, gyroscope then reinforced with mimicking sensory feedback through touch, temperature and force sensors distributed on the hand of the prosthesis then analyzed with microcontroller “ Adruino Uno” with an existing online models and tweaking the parameters through trial and error to produce certain primary functions with hand and wrist joint bounded by realm of affordability and functionality for people living in places like Egypt either amputee or having problems with the motor functions of upper limbs.
The target is first to get the handle of the fabrication process, programming interfaces skills, and problems facing the design within the scope of cost, availability of items and necessary skills to reach a considerable prototype and advance on my own future projects. The description and details of my search, steps well be added soon. Read more details of my project here
