Current prosthetic devices to be used as a substitute for hands are inadequate to the needs of amputees. The project team has designed a new prosthetic to be used in conjunction with new signal processing technology that will meet current needs and mimic all essential motion of the human hand. This design minimizes the number of actuators by using a four-bar linkage design to control multiple joints.
