Getting started!

Before starting please make sure you read the Disclaimer, because such a hobby project can be all fun and games untill someone gets hurt.

Keeping that in mind let’s get started this little fun adventure ­čÖé

When you’re building a prosthetic hand, first you need to have a hand itself. You can either download an existing one or you can model one yourself.

Your hand will need to be articulated by something. In case of PrusaHand we’re using┬áservos┬áto flex fingers and another servo to articulate the thumb.

Servos need to be driven by something. That something can be arduino based microprocessor.

To have a control over the motor movement the arduino has to have some sort of the user input.
