By 3D Printing the research socket, the Intelligent Sensing team was able to:

  • Print holes to place their electrodes in, instead of having to have them cut out by a technician.
  • Have a wrist of varying length (shown in the black filament), which is useful for connecting different attachments of varying sizes and getting the perfect length for the volunteer.
  • Easily connect their research hand by printing threaded holes at the wrist.
