In this Instructables Ive come with an idea that can be implemented to existing 3d printed prosthetic hands. In existing electrically powered prosthesis I Couldnt find the use of capacitive touch sensing technology for the actuation of fingers. This project combines two very cool things, Arduino with Capacitive touch sensing for the actuation and remix of e-NABLE Phoenix hand design.
Basically the phoenix hand is a body powered hand, What Ive done on this project is that I converted it into an electrically powered prosthesis by choosing required part design.
The advantage of capacitive touch sensing is, through touch you can actuate the fingers easily. Currently this model cannot control individual fingers and more development is required in weight carrying capacity and grasping capacity.”
