Working on a new prosthetic arm

Recommended Posts

No pressure sensors, its all on the user to give just how much strength is applied.  

Now I’m confused. How can you “feel” how much pressure you are applying to an egg?

honestly, it is what Jerkman said, all kidding aside....and not trying to sound arrogant, but with the years that I have used these things, you just know how much force is needed, or not needed.  I have had that arm, and hand for over 6 yrs, it is to the point I sometimes don't look at stuff I grab, or move, its so in tune with me! it does not appear as high tech as other hands, but it seriously is much higher in tech due to the software inside, a true case of whats inside that counts.

  Do they  make specialized  rifle  attachments for your arm  ? For hunting or do  you just use what you use every day for hunting ?

They do actually have rifle cradles for shooters.  Its like a little “U” shaped device that attaches to a special adapter for the arm.  If I hunt at home, or out back as I call it, I do not wear a prosthesis at all actually, rifle, or crossbow, but do use my painted arm for compound bow.  If I hunt on state, or my other spot by my job, I use my painted arm.

here is a device that’s available, I referred to but never used.

I have been offered another opportunity from my prosthetic’s office.  I have been invited to be a participant in a research study for new technology that is not yet commercially available.  This tech is a part of how I operate the prosthesis.  As mentioned before I use 2 electrodes to control my hand/powered wrist.  This new system is multiple electrodes in new ways.  What I would do is take a test of timed tasks with my current painted Michelangelo arm you see all the time posted.  After that, they will fabricate a new arm with multiple electrodes to control the hand I have been using.  I will wear it for 6 weeks, and the same timed tasks will be conducted as I did with the current arm system I wear now.  After that, a second new arm will be created with different products for more timed task tests.  Still new, foggy about specific details, will visit them after work Wednesday, and see whats up.  I figured I would share...

That is some cool stuff bionic took a while to read about it all 

From your first posts hope this new one works out even better 

Glad you enjoyed it, it will be quite an adventure 

when I started this thread a year ago, I was persuing the build of a new arm, but fell on the current arm, and broke the hand.  I had to get it repaired, so insurance obviously, and understandably wouldn’t approve of a new arm.  I still am using that arm/hand.  This research study will build me 2 arms, however once the study is completed, I can keep the 2 arms, but they will be gutted of the components that are not yet commercially available.

Reserve your judgement of the Jerkman until you meet him. Unlike most forum members he actually sours with human contact. You may also choose to implore the “fist bump” instead of the handshake when you meet him. He does identify as a Jerkman and I’m pretty sure he ain’t left handed.

It's ok. I'm highly hygienic. Big hand washer. And what's wrong with souring? Turkey Feathers loves sour beers
