Abstract

The loss of a limb can be a very traumatic experience for a person. Prosthetics are devices that can help restore some of the functionality to the user. However, without insurance, prosthetics can be very expensive, creating demand for more efficient and cheaper prosthetics. My research uses an Arduino microcontroller to design a myoelectric prosthetic – a prosthetic that reads electrical signals from the residual limb and powers motors for movement.
