Abstract

To design an underactuated wrist prosthesis, a preliminary study has been conducted to identify the relationship between the Degrees of Freedom (DoFs) of the wrist during the execution of tasks of daily living. After the identification of the principal orientations of the wrist describing the tasks, polynomial functions were used to define a synergetic relationship between the DoFs. The latter can be implemented in a prosthetic wrist featuring one actuator to obtain motion along three DoFs, with the purpose of reducing compensatory movements.
