Abstract

Most of the interfaces of the current upper limb prosthetic device are rigid. However, human limbs and body are a combination of rigid and soft parts. Such a combination inherently suggests to implement soft ergonomic interfaces between the human body and such prosthetic devices. To this aim we have developed a novel set of wearable solutions, including a textile sleeve embedding EMG electrodes for the control of hand prosthesis. This interface has been integrated and preliminary tested in order to control a 5 d.o.f. low cost robotic hand.
