Moving 3D Printed Prosthetic Arms With A Pulse | Hackaday
One of the best uses of 3D printers we’ve seen are custom prosthetics. Even today, custom-built prosthetics cost an arm and a leg, but there’s no reason why they should. Right now, we can scan someone’s arm or leg, import that scan into a 3D-modeling program, and design a custom-fit orthotic that can be spit out on a 3D printer. Now, we’re seeing some interesting methods of turning those 3D-printed parts into the beginnings of a cybernetic design. This is a custom printed robotic hand controlled by a pulse sensor. It’s in its early stages right now, but so far the results are promising and this is a great entry to The Hackaday Prize

KIT researchers create novel 3D printed prosthetic hand - 3D Printing Industry
Researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany have developed a novel five-finger 3D printed hand prosthesis which uses sensors, an embedded control system, and an RGB camera in the base of the palm to autonomously grasp objects.

According to the research paper “The KIT Prosthetic Hand: Design and Control,” standard myoelectric prosthetic hands (artificial limbs using existing muscles in your residual limb to control its functions) rely on the user for control.

DIY Socket for Prosthetics Contains Power Supply, Charger | Hackaday
Innovation in prosthetics is open to anyone looking to enhance the quality of life, but there’s an aspect of it that is sometimes under-served. The DIY Prosthetic Socket entry to the Hackaday Prize is all about the foundation of a useful prosthesis: a custom, form-fitting, and effective socket with a useful interface for attaching other hardware. While [atharvshringaregt] is also involved with a project for a high-tech robotic hand with meaningful feedback, socket fitting and design is important enough to be its own project.

The goal is not just to explore creating these essential parts in a way that’s accessible and affordable to all, but to have them include a self-contained rechargeable power supply that can power attachments.

New Bionic Arm Blurs Line Between Self and Machine for Wearers
The result, published this month in Science Translational Medicine, is a bionic arm strikingly different than anything that’s come before it. Once fitted, the arm uses vibrations and a sensory illusion to give wearers a natural sense of their robotic appendage moving through space.

Laboratory for Bionic Integration @ the Cleveland Clinic
In our research, we study the sensory nervous system with a focus on the mechanics of brain organization and neuroplasticity. Our findings allow us to build prosthetic devices with sensory integration, giving amputees a sense of touch through their prosthetic limb.

Shiva hands is a project in which we are attempting to build different funny hands and tools. These are going to be various attachments for the Bionico hand.

The Bionico hand comprises of three parts. The socket, the wrist and the the hand. The wrist connects the hand to the socket. The wrist is made of two parts which can be connected by just sliding them together. Instead of making a whole hand for a particular funny hand we just have to build the hand and it easily fits on the Bionico arm because of the design of the wrist.

Nerds Unite: Prosthetics Inspired by Comics and Beyond! | Hackaday
Open Bionics is a company creating prosthetics inspired by heroines, heroes and the fictional worlds they live in. The designs emblazoned on their first set of bionic hands include ones drawn from Queen Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, and Marvel’s Iron Man. The best thing about what they are doing is they offer you, dear reader, a chance to lend your own super powers of design and engineering.

Open Bionics: open source prosthetic hands
Open Bionics is thrilled to announce the next generation of bionic hands. These are prosthetics kids can get really excited about and feel proud to wear. They’re not just getting medical devices, they’re getting bionic hands inspired by their favorite characters. The Walt Disney Company is generously donating the time of its creative teams and providing royalty free licenses. More designs coming soon!

Rapidly Prototyping Prosthetics, Braille, and Wheelchairs | Hackaday
We live in an amazing time where the availability of rapid prototyping tools and expertise to use them has expanded faster than at any other time in human history. We now have an amazing ability to quickly bring together creative solutions — perfect examples of this are the designs for specialized arm prosthetics, Braille printing, and custom wheelchair builds that came together last week. Earlier this month we published details about the S.T.E.A.M. Fabrikarium program taking place at Maker’s Asylum in Mumbai.
