Colin Lagator — Flexi vs EMG sensors

Will the glove on the non amputated hand that has the sensors impede the usefulness of the non amputated hand?

Christine Junod — User Testing

have you tried online forrums to advertise and talk about your ideas with? maybe a site like reddit, or something even more focused on amputees could help you find a user

In expanding, make sure that the application of the hand and the things that go into transferring the hand to multiple users is clear and easy to navigate so that it isn't any extra work for companies.

What is your current goal for format of user interaction? How does cost come into play - transferring ideas to existing companies? How would the semantics work in terms of a corporate partnership, especially when money begins to become important?

By showcasing the project to R&D companies (there are lots of Research Parks who are full of companies who do things like this), I'm sure companies would be very receptive to an affordable solution for amputees.

Any ideas of making the hand design you have currently printed more aesthetically pleasing and accurate?

Jonathan Pett - The current design is very clearly robotic in appearance; making it more organic might make the prosthetic easier to accept and feel more like a part of the person.

Amy Grupenhagen — Flexi vs EMG sensors

Flexi sensors might be better for making your design available cheaper and thus to a greater audience. I would suggest interviewing potential users and ask to what extent something like a glove on the existing hand would bother them: to what extent is it invasive? Being required to wear a glove might outway the cost and complexity that comes with the EMG sensors

Very great job explaining technical details in easily understood language that doesn't require expertise. #works

How useful is it for an amputee to have both hands doing the same thing? Is there any way to have them doing different things?
