The proposed project centers on developing and evaluating a novel set of control modes for modern prosthetic wristterminal device systems that provide a much simpler interface between the user and the devices. These semi-autonomous smart control modes aim to manage some of the complexity of coordinated multi-joint movement, as apparent in the human wrist during everyday manipulation tasks. Such tasks may be keeping a soup spoon level when eating, tilting a cup towards the mouth when drinking or simply coordinating the motion of biological and artificial arm joints when reaching.
