Project Title:
Finger joints design of 3D-printed Exo-Prosthetics
Supervisor:LEUNG Suk Wai Winnie
Co-Supervisor:-
Quota:3
Project Description:The goal of the project is to go through a full design process towards mechanical design of actuatable fingers for a 3D-printed Exo-Prosthetics. A survey of existing approaches, modularization and optimization of different finger digits, and prototyping of final design will be carried out. Examples of existing desigs can be found at this open source platform http://enablingthefuture.org.
Course type:UROP1000 UROP1100  
Applicant's Roles:Successful candidates are expected to work in a team to design the prostheses. Students interested in this project should have a combination of strong practical skills, modeling experience (e.g. CAD/ SolidWorks) and adequate mathematical background to learn and understand the basics in robot manipulation. Some knowledge on other types of prosthetics is desirable but not mandatory. 
Applicant's Learning Objectives:1. Students will enhance their knowledge of robotics 2. Hands-on experience for modeling and prototyping design 3. Collaboration with interdisciplinary team of system designers  
Complexity of the project:Challenging
