Development of a fully flexure-based prosthetic hand

The Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) project is a demonstration of the design possibilities of flexure-based robotic mechanisms. The combined properties like maintenance free, minimized assembly, low hysteresis, precision, lightweight, low cost, hostile environment compatible, stiff (robust) joints will give this hand a lead over conventional designs.
