To allow for more mobility for amputees we created a robotic hand that mimics the movement of the other hand. This will enable the user to do simple tasks like hold a cup or open a door. We noticed that many of the hands that were created did not have a way to save and replay their motions. So in the future we plan on making this function. Also buying a functional prosthetic arm is really expensive so with our project we are hoping that we will be able to make buying prosthetics more cost effective.
