Background Information
LaMP (Lower arm Mechatronic Prosthetic) is a project, imagined by Thinking Robot Studios, that aims to create an upper limb mechatronic limb prosthetic solution.

The final product is to be distributed to amputees located in global conflict zones through the use of select NGOs, specifically in Jordan.

Team Goals
The LaMP team is responsible for a final design that is adaptable in such a way that it can be paired with the solutions provided by the remainder of the LaMP team.

Requirements for the project will center on the functionality of the hand,the user's comfort level, and the durability of the product under the environmental conditions in the Middle East.
Project Scope
The Dalhousie mechanical design team, as part of the LaMP project, is responsible for the mechanical and material design of the prosthetic.

The team will improve upon existing market solutions to provide a hand prosthetic capable of realistic motion and improved material properties.
