This article presents a model for the couplings of the movements between the phalanges and fingers in a hand when they execute certain functions. It also shows the importance of knowing these couplings, suggests methods for obtaining them, and discusses how to apply them to the construction of artificial upper limbs, highlighting the important mechanical(More)
In recent years, single crystal Cu-Al-Ni alloys with shape memory behavior (SMB) became generally commercialized. They achieved the level of extended application, including upper limb human prosthesis with anthropomorphic characteristics. An actuator based in single crystal Cu-Al-Ni alloy was tested as a prototype for prosthetic actuators. Their thermal(More)
