  • simulating upper limb prostheses dynamics

    Dear subscribers,
    I am a robotics doctoral student interested in simulating dynamic
    motion of
    upper limb prosthetic/arm systems. Ideally, I would like to produce a
    study
    investigating both body powered and myoelectric systems. In order to do
    so, I
    need information on the masses, moments of inertia, and centers of
    gravity of a
    variety of upper limb prosthetic systems.

    Also, I would like to pose the following questions to the group:
    In fitting an upper limb prosthesis, does the center of gravity of the
    arm/prosthesis system play a direct role in which components are used
    for a
    given client?
    Do you have clients, such as children or athletes, who are active in
    sports
    requiring extensive use of their prosthesis? Other than wear, what
    challenges
    has this presented?

    Finally, I'm aware of work examining the inertial characteristics of
    lower
    extremity prostheses and optimizing these for walking. Does something
    similar
    exist for upper extremity tasks?

    I look forward to any help that you can provide.

    Thanks!

    Ann
