Abstract

The development of upper limb prostheses faces many different challenges. Speciically, improvements in device design are urgently required, together with increased personalisation of devices according to patients’ needs and overall device ease of use and affordability. This investigation is part of a project entitled Anthropomorphic Design for Advanced Manufacturing (ADAM) which aims to develop a new Design System for personalisation of upper limb prosthetics using additive manufacturing technology. Here, a novel procedure for acquiring data on the movement features of the sound and prosthetic upper limb will be presented, as input for those design requirements.
