Prosthetic thumb controled by servo
Considering some people with agenesis with partial palm, I would like to create a prosthetic with only a thumb to enable catch an object.
I would like to use a force sensor to use the palm force to controle the servo, and a micro arduino ( or ESP8266 ), a servo, and battery attached on a bracelet on the arm.
If it is successsfull, maybe try to use several sensor on the palm, depending of the hand hability to put pressure on different points on the persons palm
What do you think ?
