Design Of An Assistive Upper Limb

Design Of An Assistive Upper Limb

Here is the final report written by 3 graduate students who worked during 4 months full time to build a proof of concept for an assistive system dedicated to ease utilization of e-nable printed apparatus. They together investigated the state of the art in low cost assistive upper limb prosthetics, and proposed and tested a set of technical solutions.
Thanks to Júlia FIGUEREDO DE ALENCAR, Khumbo NYIRENDA and Nicholas TYRIE, who came from the University of Bath (UK) to perform this semester in the school of Industrial Engineering in Grenoble, for their high involvement in this project and for the quality of this report.

    Hi. I’m a former graduate student from UCF, but I still take interest in prosthetic design as a hobby. I read your article and wanted to know if there’s anyway to modify the PCB and arduino coding such that more than 1 motor (still preferring the PQ12-R) could be used? And if yes, what would the wiring look like and what changes would be needed in the arduino code? Thank you!
