A 3D Printed, Robotic Prosthetic Hand
1.) Innovative fabrication with a FFF/FDM Printer using dual material 3D printing with co-polyester and thermoplastic elastomer filaments.
2.) Streamline process of connection between prosthesis and amputee using electromyography, or a hybrid of manual and electromyography.
3.) Design of prosthesis is sleek, clean, and recognizable.
Further, we’re working on creating each finger to be modular, so that it can be changed out easily if ever broken, as well as the ability for the finger to move laterally – something that current prosthesis rarely have the functionality to perform. This will continue to have the prosthesis resemble the functionality of the human hand.
We also plan on running a Kickstarter campaign as a way to earn initial capital for the start up, once we have a fully functional prototype.
