Conceptual Design of 3 Independent Motor Actuation Transmission Systems for Low-Cost Anthropomorphic Prosthetic Hand

Anggriyawan Putranto, Ilham Priadythama, Susy Susmartini, and Pringgo W. Laksono
Abstract—This paper presents a transmission mechanism design for anthropomorphic prosthetic hand which enables it to do both power and precision grip. The fingers and thumb is pull type with 1 DOF and they must be adaptive towards object's contour. In the other hand, transmission system must be small enough to be placed in metacarpal. To solve any physical and technical contradiction problem, we used TRIZ methodology. The result is 3 independent motor actuation transmission systems, each for thumb, pointing finger, and the unity of middle-ring-little finger. Every independent system using bolt-nut as reducer and tension spring as adaptive component. This configuration enables the hand to do 5 of 6 basic models of human grasping.

Index Terms—Transmission, anthropomorphic, prosthetic hand.
