Prostheses imitate human muscular system and reduce contact wrench via a wearable exoskeleton

MIRMI researchers have presented two new revolutionary concepts for upper-limb prostheses. The researchers developed a prosthesis which recreates the mechanical behavior of the human neuromuscular system in terms of stiffness characteristics, natural motion, and tactile sensing capabilities. These features are combined in a small-size and sophisticated device, the Artificial Neuromuscular Prosthesis (ANP), combining the latest insights from human motor control and robotics. They also developed a solution for mitigating the high forces and moments between the residual limb and the prosthesis:…
