Abstract

An anthropomorphic transradial prosthetic arm is proposed in this paper. In order to generate the wrist flexion/extension and ulna/radial deviation, a novel wrist mechanism is proposed based on the parallel prismatic manipulators. It is expected to realize high speed operation, higher positional accuracy and anthropomorphic features using the proposed mechanism. The prosthetic arm consists of an under-actuated hand as the terminal device. The hand mechanism is capable of providing the grasping adaptation. With the intention of verifying the effectiveness of the mechanisms in motion generation, motion simulation and kinematic analysis are carried out.
