Embrace - Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand


All parts were designed to be put together in two piece assemblies. Only one part would need to be attached at a time during assembly. This avoided complex processes requiring two hands. A four-bar linkage was used as a finger joint coupling mechanism to produce consistent movement and greater force at the fingertip than a purely tendon-based design. These design choices were made at the expense of durability and efficiency due to the lack of non-backdriveable gearing, higher-strength components, and precision parts. Designed by Cliff Shin
