  1. 1. Assessment of function of a 3D-printed body-powered upper limb prosthetic device

    Kandidat-uppsats, Högskolan i Jönköping/HHJ, Avd. för rehabilitering; Högskolan i Jönköping/HHJ, Avd. för rehabilitering

    Författare :Adam Broman; Gustav Blom; [2019]
    Nyckelord :RIT-arm; hand function; Box and block test; nine-hole peg test; OPUS;

    Sammanfattning : Purpose Conventional arm-prosthesis are expensive to make and therefore limit the availability for users on the geographical locations there the user pays for it. This study compares the hand function of a 3D-printed prosthesis with lower production cost with a traditional prosthesis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Motorized tensioner systemfor prosthetic hands

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Mekatronik; KTH/Mekatronik

    Författare :JONAS TJOMSLAND; FELIX HARDELL; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Mechatronics; Haptics; Prosthetics; 3D Printing;

    Sammanfattning : Modern research in prosthetic devices and other assistive technologies are constantly pushing boundaries. While the technology is impressive, it is still inaccessible for the greater part of the people in need of it. Advanced devices are often extremely expensive and require regularly maintenance from professionals. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hundens anpassing till tre ben : ett värdigt liv?

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Biomedical Sciences and Veterinary Public Health

    Författare :Elin Ljunger; [2018]
    Nyckelord :amputation; anpassning; livskvalitet; protes; hund; trebent;

    Sammanfattning : En vanlig orsak till amputation hos våra hundar idag är neoplasier och olika typer av sarkom. Behandlingen sker genom att amputera det drabbade benet i kombination med cytostatikabehandling. LÄS MER

  4. 4. An investigation of the relationships between electrotactile stimulus parameters, primary afferent response, and perceived sensation

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Författare :Jessica Sofie Louise Vidmark; [2018]
    Nyckelord :electrotactile stimulation; psychophysical sensation; primary afferent response; sensory feedback; prosthetics; elektrisk hudstimulering; psykofysisk respons; primärafferent respons; sensorisk återkoppling; proteser;

    Sammanfattning : Sensory feedback possesses the possibility of adding a new dimension to many applications, including, but not limited to, prosthetics and surgical robots for improved control, virtual reality for incorporation of another sense, and phantom limb pain reduction for amputees. Electrotactile stimulation provides a compact, light-weight, energy efficient, highly responsive, and non-invasive option for sensory feedback; however, it has been found to commonly elicit unnatural or uncomfortable sensations for the user.

  5. 5. Artificial Neural Networks for Enhanced Exoskeleton Grip Movement

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematik LTH

    Författare :Malcolm Horal; [2018]
    Nyckelord :AI; ML; ANN; RNN; Exoskeleton; Electromyography; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : The idea to artificially enhance our physical abilities has always fascinated humankind and over the cause of history it has resulted in countless important innovations such as wheelchairs and carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer leg prosthetics. By combining electronics and Artificial Intelligence the step towards artificially enhanced limbs has been greatly reduced. LÄS MER
