Modelling and Simulation of 3D Human Arm Prosthesis
Arising out of military conflicts, defects acquired by birth, the emergence of diseases at any age, but especially the increasing incidence of trauma caused by accidents both work and traffic, a growing number of people remain without parts of the upper limbs. So, necessity of find suitable solution for the people who suffered amputation in order to improve their quality of life must to became a priority for the researcher for many domains as doctors, engineers and psychologists. In this paper we propose a 3D modeled solution designed in a computer aided design software that is able to mimic the human arm anatomy and that are easy to product and suitable to combine the existent and future technology from the market to replace the solutions that are either expensive, uncomfortable or have reduced functionality. In order to validate the model proposed we develop the mathematical model of the human arm and we simulate the entire functionality of the model.
