A power assist device to help with de-boning beef. This admittance type device has 6 degrees of freedom. 2 DOF are powered to provide the assistive force, with a 6 DOF force-torque sensor to measure the users intent. A particularly challenging aspect of this device was the requirement that it be washed often with a pressurized spray of corrosive cleaner.
MechAdept augmented an existing team, providing concept generation, kinematics and manipulability studies, experience prototype design, mechanical design of prototype subassemblies, and mechanical design of final device subassemblies.
