This pair of socks is not ordinary can make the artificial limb feel doat

This pair of socks is not general: you can make prosthetic perception (compilation: dried) with 3D printing architecture, new materials and the embedded sensor to replace those without decorative wood and plastics, artificial spring will come soon. But even in the future, there is no way to distribute these prostheses equally to each. In order to make up for those who can not afford or can not afford to buy a new prosthetic limbs, the Austria researchers put forward the installation of sensors on the clothing, so that the flexibility of the prosthetic limb becomes clever idea. Linz University of Applied Science and technology will be their research on proCover, submitted to the American computer association UIST meeting. At the meeting, it was considered one of the best papers. The introduction of the paper reads: "the design and construction of artificial limbs that mimic natural touch has drawn increasing interest. Although there are many exciting inventions in the field, these inventions are far fetched for most people. Therefore, we hope to be able to introduce a low-cost, inductive function of intelligent equipment, can be applied to those who have purchased the ordinary prosthesis, to make up for this gap." Their solution is based on the fact that many prosthetic users wear socks as well as ordinary people. So why not use smart fabrics to make these socks? They did the same thing. The conductive fabric layer is sandwiched between the piezoresistive layers to form a pressure sensitive grid covering the entire foot and ankle. Accordingly, the pressure sensitive grid is connected to the ring of the vibration motor, and the user can wear the device in any place which is convenient for him. When the pressure occurs at a specific part of the foot, some motors vibrate at different frequencies. The product is very flexible (in many ways) and low in cost when used to induce pressure and position. Moreover, its non-invasive feedback mechanism means that it does not require surgery. Some amputees participated in the initial prototype test, the results show that the equipment use effect. Participants also provided useful feedback to researchers to realize that they need to improve the product’s customization. Fortunately, it is very easy to adjust the position and the intensity of the feedback information, as well as to change the motor, such as the increase of the pressure and so on,. The team then prepared to further reduce the complexity of the socks, and the development of the hand can be worn on the prosthesis, so that the prosthetic hand has the ability to perceive intelligent gloves.相关的主题文章:
