Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In this work an electromechanical hand is implemented based on the study and implementation of the phalanges of the five fingers of the hand, a control system based on a microcontroller was implemented that takes as feedback signals coming from flexosensors and strain gauges. The movement of the fingers was made based on myoelectric signals in real time, these signals were acquired through an innovative method of acquisition based on patterns. The tests performed were measurements with extended hand, closed hand and pressing an object that validates the present proposal.
