STATUS OF THE JOHNS HOPKINS RESEARCH PROGRAM ON UPPER-LIMB PROSTHESIS-ORTHOSIS POWER AND CONTROL SYSTEM.

Woodrow Seamone, Gerhard Schmeisser

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

As an alternative to the design of specialized externally powered devices, the Johns Hopkins approach has been to develop a basic power pack and control concept which has much versatility relative to application to upper-limb prostheses as well as possible application to orthoses. Two sizes of motor power packs and three types of sensors have been evaluated in selected experimental clinical testing. The sensor options are myoelectric, skin displacement, and body motion inputs. These basic components can be assembled in a number of ways to meet a particular requirement. The motor/electronics/battery pack may be located on the belt and power transmitted to the local area of need by means of a Bowden cable, or the power unit and battery unit may be located integral in the prosthesis.
