Call for a myo-electric prosthetic arm creation

Good evening Gentlemen,

 

As a last year student of prosthetics and orthotics, I have been studying the issues to create a myo-electric arm with some other people.

All members are invited to join this project, which includes a fair part of 3D modeling, based on published works on the subject, but also mechanisms and electronics.

This project is inspired by the Bionico Hand, supported by an humanitarian NGO, and dedicated to the amputees who can not afford the official myo eletric prosthetics (which are currently very expensive).

 

Hope to share the data with creative, curious and talented people and to keep it beautifull.

The prosthetic socket modelisation will be done through open-source organic 3D modeling, and all parts are aimed to be printed in a first time.

 

Best regards,

 

Gauthier
