Description

Smart Hand project was made to be a simple and easy solution to amputees who deserve the right of such a cheap and effective tool.

This Smart Hand doesn't need a surgical intervention: its Low cost and simplicity are due to the technical choices made to solve the given problem: using the hand muscles signals as inputs to control the titanium hand is more effective than doing a whole chirurgical intervention. Only a MYO sensor wa sufficient to translate muscle contractions to 0 and 1 : On/Off.

At the end of every finger, a pression sensor is used to calibrate the pressure in contact with the hands according to the given mode.

Through a mobile phone, it is possible to interact with the Intel Edison board then configure a pressure mode: Open door, Mouse mode, Phone tap mode or even taking an empty egg without breaking it

This project came second at Imagine Cup competition Worldwide
