Despite the academic research on myoelectric upper limb protheses conducted in Ecuador, there are no local companies manufacturing electromyography-controlled protheses. In addition, some local universities have developed their own prototypes. However, many of the components are expensive, need to be imported, and are difficult to acquire, such as the electromyography sensors. This literature survey covers relevant studies developed by the industry and the academia on the design of upper limb pr...
In this article, we describe the design and implementation of an experimental robotic hand platform in order to create a real environment to tests signals that have been treated with different applied techniques or devices used in the extraction of bioelectrical signals. Mechanically the platform has a hand of 5 degrees of freedom, one for each finger. The movement of each finger is generated by a servomotor, which receives the signal from an electronic distribution board. The reception of signa...
