Description

Myoelectric hand is a prosthetic hand that users can control intuitively using muscle signals measured on the amputated end. Such technology has been commercialized, however, there remains critical problems which are:



- Extremely expensive($10,000~$40,000)

- Difficult to repair

- Homogeneous design

(design to conceal the lost hand)
