TitanArm exoskeleton

The powerful hand – exoskeleton TitanArm for the real super heroes

Exoskeleton is already far not news to the robotics world. It will help you to deceive own force and to do the most difficult physical activity. The exoskeleton of the powerful hand is developed and designed by group of students of University of Pennsylvania. Probably these children secretly plan to seize power over the world, but official the version is as follows: TitanArm II is developed for assistance to people with limited mobility, and also for improvement of quality of rehabilitation. TitanArm II is a aluminum sleeve with the powerful electric motor. Operating this device, it is possible to present itself the real super hero, in any case, the right hand it will be exact as at it. The new TitanArm II project received silver on an internal show jumping of University of Pennsylvania, at present the team of young scientists is in Orlando for participation in the competition Cornell Cup.

Artificial hands i-Limb

Artificial hands of i-Limb controlled via iPhone

Artificial hands of i-Limb of production Touch Bionics submit not only to signals of muscles of the person, but also orders from the iPhone. Through a mobile application the user can force the artificial limb to accept one of 24 positions. The latest technologies allow to straighten, for example, a forefinger, to shift big and index fingers or to relax a hand. Signals from the appendix are given on an i-Limb hand through Bluetooth. Developers tried to achieve realness of a hand therefore began to let out it in 2 sizes – man’s and female and in several options of registration of skin of a biohand. Aluminum framework reduces the weight of an artificial limb and gives opportunity to receive load of a hand to 90 kg. Essence control of work of a inartificial limb, that developers in the new artificial hands i-LIMB Pulse model gave the chance to the person most to adjust a hand artificial limb through Bluetooth and the computer BioSim programs: to adjust effort and an operation threshold, to choose opportunities and standard captures, to include or switch off pulsing effect. Generally, now the person can precisely arrange a hand an artificial limb under actions and physiological features of the organism.

Wearable Robot Hybrid Assistive Limb will Help Paralyzed Man to Visit France

A 49-year-old Japanese man who has been paralyzed for 28 years since he was involved in a car accident decided to go to a trip to France with the help of Hybrid Assistive Limb or HAL. “Robot Suit HAL” is a cyborg-type robot that can expand and improve physical capability.When a person attempts to move, nerve signals are sent from the brain to the muscles via motoneuron, moving the musculoskeletal system as a consequence.

Robotic Hand Can Type Insted of People

Robotic Hand Can Type Insted of People

That’s supposedly what people with mobility problems will one day be able to say to their robot companions if engineers at Virginia Tech in the US get their way. They want to create robots with the manual dexterity to operate the machines people regularly encounter in everyday life, whether they are plain old computers, drinks vending machines, bus/tram/train ticketing machines or shopping mall info kiosks. But there’s a problem: right now, the robotic hands that have been developed for tasks such as spacecraft maintenance (like NASA’s Robonaut), defusing IEDs (as Shadow Robot has suggested) or the astonishing nerve-controlled prosthetic limbs from TouchBionics, are all geared for their own tasks – and not for circa 30-words-per-minute typing or sundry button-pressing tasks by robots.
