For this project we were pushed by our Professor to push the boundaries of current upper-limb prosthetic design.
Through extensive research I found that the prosthetic functioned as an assistant to the dominant functioning hand. The prosthetic needed to be both flexible and adjustable in order to accommodate a variety of different grips.
The Motor winds one cable while releasing the other, causing the arm to curl. Releasing the cable will return the arm to its normal position.
