Data for design prosthetic hand parts in 3D printer
Losing a hand is a highly traumatic experience affecting both the physical life and mental well-being of a person. It is therefore vital to provide a prosthetic hand with similar functionality to the hand lost. The human hand is a very delicate and complex part of the body used every day in a wide range of tasks from performing heavier works to smaller gestures. Amputation may be carried out both due to sudden accidents and as a result of congenital defiance’s and vascular illnesses. The development and control of prosthetic hands is an active research area and recently progress in mechatronics, sensor integration and innovative control has been made. In this article, we present data in form of part file of prosthetic hand, a novel five-finger 3D printed hand prosthesis and its components along with ipt and detailed drawing files. Drawing files of various parts of prosthetic hand is created based on dimensions mention on (Table 1) on Autodesk Inventor 2016 which then converted into 3D printer supportable files i.e STL format finally required parts are printed with the help of 3D printer. The mechanism has been realized in 3D printing technologies to facilitate a personalization of the prosthetic hand in terms of size and kinematic parameters. The prosthesis has been designed as a 50th percentile male hand each. Since advanced prosthetic hands often come in at a price too high to reach a large part of the amputee consumer base, the case is often that only the richest amputees are able to afford electric prosthetic devices, and are thus often limited to simpler, body-powered alternatives. These alternatives are often found to be lacking in features and resemblance when comparing to the more technologically advanced electric prosthetics.
