The development of modern, myoelectrically controlled hand prostheses can be difficult, due to the many requirements its mechanical design and control system need to fulfill [1]. The hand should be controllable with few input signals, while being able to perform a wide range of motions. It should be lightweight and slim, but be able to actuate all fingers separately. To accomplish this, new control and mechanical design techniques are implemented in a modern hand prosthesis prototype.
