Challenge: 3D Medical; Bringing 3D printed Limbs to the Next Level #CPEU4 Other


With the reducing cost of electronics, it is the plan to build a simple but effective mechatronic system to activate the gripping function. Therefore, a sensor is placed somewhere on the body that can be controlled separately from any other movement. Gripping can be done without parasitic translation or rotation of the limb.
For the challenge the artificial limb will be a hand. The gripping function of the hand may be controlled separately from the wrist or the elbow.
