Danish students to humanize prosthetic limbs

Siemensfonden is splurging out on a project to make the control of prosthetic hands and arms more intuitive and less robotic. The project is lead by two Danish health technology students from Aalborg University.

Through implanted electrodes muscle impulses will be used to improve the control of prosthetic limbs. That’s the procedure for the two engineer students Jakob Celander Rosenvang and Ronnie Wedel Horup from Aalborg University - a project that the financial funding of DKK 31.500 will go towards.

“It allows us to carry out more realistic and advanced trials, which are closer to reality. Otherwise we would be forced to scale down our project. Now it will be more relevant to the group of people that we are trying to provide better movement options for, so the prosthetics become less robotic,” Jakob Celander Rosenvang says in a press release.
