Project Summary Project Information

For the original project introduction, click on the following link- Project Readiness Package.

The purpose of this project is to design a testing apparatus for use on hand prosthetics. The goal of this is to provide immediate, quantifiable feedback that the prosthetic designers can use to improve their hands. Our testing apparatus should be able to measure both the force exerted by a hand prosthetic and the angular position of that force.

Jon Schull and the e-NABLE community is our primary customer, and they will be the people that primarily use and benefit from our apparatus. Jon Schull is the founder of e-NABLE, an international community devoted to making hand prosthetics freely available to people that need them around the world. To compensate for such a diverse audience, the testing apparatus should be able to fit almost any model, type, or size of prostheses without modifying them.
