Successful replacement of the human wrist joint is a major challenge for modern orthopedic surgery. A multidisciplinary team of surgeons and engineers is working at the University of Bath to tackle some of the key issues in engineering a new wrist joint prosthesis. An important aspect of this work has been the development of a wrist simulator that can be used to test the functionality and performance of prosthetic wrist designs. The use of dSPACE Prototyper has enabled a control system for this wrist simulator to be created with minimal minimum time and effort.
