    Hi Michael, i will appreciate a any info you have on fork holder for prosthetic hand. My thinking is that if the intended recipient can handle a spoon and be able to clean up after using the toilet, his quality of life will improve significantly because he stays indoors always at the moment and he need another adult to be with him often in other…[Read more]

    Hi Juerg, thanks for your thought. The list that i reference are standard for a good prosthetics though it is impossible to meet all the requirement 100% because some condition on the last has to be sacrificed in other to meet other requirement and the physiology of the users residual limb plays a huge role in meeting those requirement. The…[Read more]

    • Hi Ayodele,
      I like your positive attitude, it is better to try and fail than to not try at all. Each failure is a sucess because we learn from it. We change our hipothesis move forward and try again.
      In terms of holding a spoon or fork, there are adapters that can slide onto a finger even an inmoov finger
      I will see what I can find.
      Good luck with…[Read more]

    Hi Juerg
    Thank you for your thoughts, i know that the idea of adapting inmoov rob hand for a human being sounds crazy but i have high hopes and some of the changes i intend to make are;
    1: Use a single servo to control the fingers in other to reduce weight.
    2: Use the methods stated in anthropometry to get approximate measurement of his hand,…[Read more]

      your list clearly shows that you do not understand the limits inherent to a robotic arm. Even with predefined programmed servo moves it is hard to e.g. have a repeatable soft ball passing from one hand to another. It’s fingers will never be able to handle a spoon! You might replace a finger with a spoon but will have to go a long way to not lose…[Read more]

    Hi all, we are planning to adapt this inmoov design for one of our recipient that loss both hands from electrical accident. He was amputated at the shoulder level in other to save his life.
    Our intention is to build inmoov hand and torso for him. We will appreciate your technical input in this forum because we are going to resize some of the stl…[Read more]

    • Hi Ayodele
      I am sorry to say but your request sounds like much much overexpecting abilities of a self printed hobby robot. before talking to your friend about this build one for yourself to understand fully the limits of such a project.
