The objective of this project was to design an affordable (less than $500) prosthesis with multi-functional capabilities. Understanding the needs of the amputee, what they hope to achieve with a prosthesis, and their concerns with existing devices was crucial. This device incorporates features commonly found in existing commercial and research-based upper-limb prosthetic designs such as servo motors and tactile sensors. The name “MYOwn” refers to the basic myoelectric capabilities of the prosthesis. This device was primarily created for a transradial amputee. 3D printing was utilized to create a lightweight and functional assembly.
