Abstract—Prosthetic hands are artificial extensions that help people who have lost their hands or arms to regain normal activity. One of the main requirements is that it should be as close as possible to the natural hand. Human hand flexibility is largely due to our highly evolved hand structure. To achieve those structures, we have adopted a human-like design concept. We designed the prosthetic hand based on the salient features of the human anatomy, making it have the same structural features as human hands: artificial joints, ligaments and Extensor hood, that should be very similar to the real hands. We tested to control prosthetic hand based on detected coordinates by Leap Motion. Finally, we could succeed in artificial hands to achieve same flexibility as characteristics of the human hand.
