Cliff Shin Spotlights The Embrace Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand

Cliff Shin, the thinktank behind the highlighted project Myoelectric Prosthetic Hand by Cliff Shin points out, 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..
