myoelectric prosthetic hand, grasping force, thumb opposition
This paper presents a novel myoelectric prosthetic hand with a strong grasp that contributes to weight saving. The hand has 2 degrees of freedom (DOF) for wrist motion and 6 DOF for motion by the four fingers and thumb. The hand’s appearance and size are similar to those of a Japanese woman’s hand. The hand weighs less than 300 g and its grasp exceeds 20 N.
