Introduction
Mechatronics engineer working as a researcher at Turing Labs since mid-2015. Victor studied his undergraduate degree in mechatronics engineering at Universidad Galileo and he started to working in the bionic Galileo Hand when he was ending his master degree in industrial electronics. He is in charge of the prosthesis mechanical design and he started to work on the Galileo Hand project because of his CAD skills learned in his undergraduate degree and he is a CSWA (Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate).

Article
Full-text available
The complexity of the user interfaces and the operating modes present in numerous assistive devices, such as intelligent prostheses, influence patients to shed them from their daily living activities. A methodology to evaluate how diverse aspects impact the workload evoked when using an upper-limb bionic prosthesis for unilateral transradial ampute...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Numerous assistive devices possess complex ways to operate and interact with the subjects, influencing patients to shed them from their activities of daily living. With the purpose of presenting a better solution to mitigate issues generated by complex or expensive alternatives, a test comparing different user-prosthesis interfaces was elaborated t...
Article
Full-text available
The strict development processes of commercial upper-limb prostheses and the complexity of research projects required for their development makes them expensive for end users, both in terms of acquisition and maintenance. Moreover, many of them possess complex ways to operate and interact with the subjects, influencing patients to not favor these d...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The complexity of User-Prosthesis Interfaces (UPIs) to control and select different grip modes and gestures of active upper-limb prostheses, as well as the issues presented by the use of electromyography (EMG), along with the long periods of training and adaptation influence amputees on stopping using the device. Moreover, development cost and chal...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The strict development processes of commercial upper-limb prosthesis and complexity of research projects makes them expensive for end users, both in terms of acquisition and maintenance. The advent of 3D printers and the internet, allows for distributed open-source research projects that follow new design principles; these take into account simplic...

El siguiente trabajo de investigación se basa en el diseño de una prótesis open-source y de bajo costo. El diseño nuestra prótesis es subactuada debido a que se buscaba reducir el número actuadores para reducir el costo. Los mecanismos integrados en nuestra prótesis tienen mejoras sobre prótesis existentes diseñadas previamente a esta. También cump...

This was originated to create the design of an open-source prosthesis, made with inexpensive materials and personal 3D printers. This project seeks to be distributed over the Internet as a “Do it Yourself” kit for anyone who has suffered amputation of the upper limbs. The prosthesis is designed to be easy to assemble and easy to repair.
