The DIY Prosthetic Socket entry to the Hackaday Prize is all about the foundation of a useful prosthesis: a custom, form-fitting, and effective socket with a useful interface for attaching other hardware. While [atharvshringaregt] is also involved with a project for a high-tech robotic hand with meaningful feedback, socket fitting and design is important enough to be its own project.
The goal is not just to explore creating these essential parts in a way that’s accessible and affordable to all, but to have them include a self-contained rechargeable power supply that can power attachments. Thoughtful strap placement and a power supply design that uses readily available components with a 3D printed battery housing makes this DIY prosthetic socket a useful piece of design that keeps in mind the importance of comfort and fitting when it comes to prosthetics; even the fanciest robot hand isn’t much good otherwise.
This is a DIY socket for a Prosthetic hand with sensor and batteries which can be adapted to various functions. This project was ideated due to the high priced prosthetics in the market and increase of access to 3D printing and open-source. This project is designed to work as the part of a larger project Called Bionico and below are the links to them. - Hackberry feedback system - hackaday.io/project/51025 [http://hackaday.io/project/51025] - Shiva Hands : hackaday.io/project/51666-shiva-hands [http://hackaday.io/project/51666-shiva-hands]
