A complete mechanical design concept of an electromyogram (EMG) controlled hybrid prosthetic hand, with 24 degree of freedom (DOF) anthropomorphic structure is presented. Brushless DC motors along with Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators are used to achieve dexterous functionality. An 8 channel EMG is used for detecting 7 basic hand gestures for control purposes. The prosthetic hand will be integrated with the Neural Network (NNE) based controller in the next phase of the study.
