The Functional Importance of Powered Wrist Flexion/Extension and Simultaneous Control for Upper Limb Prostheses

Project: Research project

Project Details


Cristina Piazza will be working to develop a control algorithm for a 2 degree of freed wrist connected to a terminal device. The algorithm will allow the user to control all movement simultaneously and will be generalized to a multifunction hand. Dr. Piazza will work under the supervision of Dr. Hargrove to develop and test this algorithm on transradial amputees.
