Based on under-actuated mechanism and coupling principle, a five-fingered, multi-sensory and biomechatronic prosthetic hand has been designed. The multi-DOF hand comprises 13 joints and is controlled by 3 motors. Actuated by only one motor, the thumb can move along a cone surface which is superior in the appearance. Also driven by one motor and transmitted by springs, the mid finger, the ring finger and the little finger can move simultaneously and envelop objects with complex shape. On the… CONTINUE READING
