Tact in Action

Patrick Slade shows how he can put together one of Tact's fingers in under 30 minutes! Also, Edward Wu demonstrates that we were able to perform EMG pattern recognition with this hand to pick up some objects with different grasps. If you want to build your own, files for the printed parts can be found here

This project presents the Tact hand-an anthropomorphic, open-source, myoelectric prosthetic hand that was designed for use by people with transradial amputations in developing countries. This hand matches or exceeds the performance of other state-of-the-art myoelectric prosthetic hands, but costs two orders of magnitude less ($250) and is easy to manufacture with a 3D printer and off-the-shelf parts.
