Stay focused on research

We engineer robust, high-performance hardware for robotics research.

Let others be distracted from their core research by student prototypes that need constant attention.

Prosthetics

DARPA Revolutionizing Prosthetics Program

Mechanical design and wire routing for a prosthetic arm with the strength of a 90th percentile male and the volume of a 50th percentile female. This was a 15 DOF forearm (3 DOF wrist, 12 DOF tendon driven hand). For this project we designed the routing of the tendons from the actuators through to the wrist. We developed a superstructure capable of supporting 300lb impulse loads and 50lb continuous loads.
