1 MESA USA Overview of National Competition & New Mexico Addendum *Please review handbook for full details; this presentation is intended only as an introduction*

2 Prosthetic Arm Challenge Teams of 2-4 will develop a low cost prosthetic device to complete tasks for a classmate who recently lost part of her arm below the elbow 1 st Place Middle & High School teams compete at Nationals in Portland, Oregon in June!

3 THREE COMPONENTS PERFORMANCE TASK HIGH SCHOOL & MIDDLE SCHOOL: 1) Distance Accuracy, 2) Object Relocation 3) Design Efficiency HIGH SCHOOL ONLY: Dexterity TECHNICAL PAPER POSTER DISPLAY & PRESENTATION

4 THE PROSTHETIC ARM – NO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS – PRE-TAX LIMIT OF $40 FOR MATERIALS – TRANS-RADIAL (BELOW ELBOW) – HAVE TERMINAL DEVICE (GRIPPING PART) WITH AT LEAST 2 ARTIFICIAL FINGERS THAT OPEN & CLOSE BY USE OF THE ACTUATOR. – TERMINAL DEVICE MUST EXTEND BEYOND TEAM MEMBER’S HAND

5 PROSTHETIC ARM CONTINUED… – THE PROSTHETIC INTERFACE (SOCKET CONNECTION BETWEEN TERMINAL DEVICE & BODY) MUST ATTACH BETWEEN ELBOW AND WRIST & EXTEND AT LEAST 3 INCHES FROM TEAM MEMBER’S WRIST ALONG THE FOREARM – ACTUATOR (PART THAT ACTIVATES & CONTROLS TERMINAL DEVICE) CANNOT BE CONTROLLED BY THE TEAM MEMBER’S OWN HAND OR OPPOSITE ELBOW, FOREARM OR HAND – ONLY THE TERMINAL DEVICE CAN BE USED TO GRAB & RELEASE OBJECTS – TEAM MEMBER WILL HAVE WRIST, HAND, & FINGERS IMMOBILIZED FOR TASKS

6 INSPECTION & IMPOUND DEVICE MUST BE READY AT TIME OF INSPECTION & IMPOUND TURNED IN AT INSPECTION: – ITEMIZED BUDGET – TECHNICAL PAPER – REPAIR PARTS & MATERIALS REPAIR KIT

7 DISTANCE ACCURACY TASK (GRAB & TOSS) PURPOSE: – GRAB OBJECTS OF VARYING SIZE – LIFT OBJECTS VERTICALLY – CORRECTLY TIME RELEASE OF OBJECT OBJECTIVE: SUCCESSFULLY THROW AS MANY BALLS INTO BUCKETS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE

8 TEST AREA 75 CM HIGH TABLE SURROUNDED BY 1 METER “WORKING AREA” (ONLY 1 STUDENT PERMITTED IN WORKING AREA DURING TRIAL) FILEBOX LID ON TOP OF TABLE TO HOLD BALLS FOR TOSSING TAPED LAUNCH LINE BUCKETS TAPED & SPACED AT 2 METERS, 3.5 METERS, AND 5 METERS FROM LAUNCH LINE 3 TENNIS BALLS, 3 (2 INCH) VINYL KICKBALLS, 3 PING PONG BALLS

9 PREPARATION FOR DISTANCE ACCURACY TRIAL 1 MINUTE TO: – PREPARE & DEMONSTRATE ARM – PLACE BALLS ANYWHERE IN BOX ON TABLE – PLACE FILEBOX LID ANYWHERE ON TABLE – STAND OUTSIDE OF WORKING AREA WHEN READY TO BEGIN OR AT END OF 1 MINUTE; IF NOT READY= MISTRIAL

10 TASK DETAILS JUDGE GIVES START ORDER & STARTS TIMER 1 MINUTE TO GRAB & TOSS BALLS INTO BUCKETS CANNOT TOSS BALLS THAT ARE OUTSIDE OF BOX LID OR ON GROUND TRIAL ENDS WHEN: – TEAM CALLS END WHEN 3 BALLS HAVE BEEN ACCURATELY TOSSED INTO BUCKETS – OR 1 MINUTE HAS PASSED – OR TEAM HAS THROWN ALL AVAILABLE BALLS KEEP BEST SCORE OF 2 TRIALS MISTRIAL: – IF TEAM TOSSES MORE THAN 1 BALL AT A TIME – ANY PART OF PROSTHETIC ARM OR MEMBER’S BODY CROSSES LAUNCH LINE

11 OBJECT RELOCATION TASK PURPOSE: DEMONSTRATE DEVICE’S ABILITY TO: – GRAB OBJECTS OF VARYING SIZE, SHAPE, CONSISTENCY & WEIGHT – LIFT OBJECTS VERTICALLY & MOVE LATERALLY – PLACE OBJECTS IN CONTAINER

12 TESTING AREA 6 FOOT TABLE IS DIVIDED INTO 3 ZONES – OPPOSITE ENDS: TASKS AREAS – MIDDLE: “THE VOID” TEAM HAS 1 MINUTE TO PLACE CRATE IN TASK AREA OF CHOICE, READY ARM & DEMONSTRATE FUNCTIONING ARM TO JUDGE 15 OBJECTS (SEE HANDBOOK) WILL BE PLACED RANDOMLY IN OPPOSITE TASK AREA AT END OF 1 MINUTE, COMPETING MEMBER STANDS OUTSIDE WORKING AREA; IF NOT READY =MISTRIAL

13 TASK DETAILS JUDGE GIVES START ORDER & STARTS TIMER 1 MINUTE TO CARRY OBJECTS OVER THE “VOID” & PLACE IN CRATE (NO TOSSING OBJECTS) IF OBJECT FALLS ON FLOOR IT MUST BE PICKED UP BY THE PROSTHETIC & PLACED IN THE TASK AREA OBJECT MAY BE SLID TO EDGE OF TABLE TO BE LIFTED BUT NOT SLID INTO THE “VOID” JUDGE WILL STOP TIMER WHEN ALL OBJECTS ARE IN CRATE OR AFTER 1 MINUTE BROKEN OBJECTS OR OBJECTS STILL HELD BY DEVICE AT END OF TIME WILL NOT COUNT KEEP BEST SCORE OF 2 TRIALS SEE HANDBOOK FOR SCORING DETAILS

14 DEXTERITY TASK PURPOSE: DEMONSTRATE DEVICE’S ABILITY TO – DEMONSTRATE FINE MOTOR CONTROL – GRASP SMALL OBJECTS – ROTATE AN OBJECT AROUND AN AXIS OBJECTIVE: SECURE ALL NUTS AS FAR AS POSSIBLE ONTO CORRESPONDING BOLTS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE

15 TEST AREA 6 FOOT TABLE WITH 2 60CM AREAS TAPED OFF 1 METER TAPED “WORKING AREA”PERIMETER AROUND TABLE WOOD TESTING DEVICE WITH 3 PREDRILLED HOLES SEE HANDBOOK FOR DEVICE, NUTS, AND BOLTS SPECIFICATIONS

16 1 MINUTE TO PREPARE FOR TASK READY PROSTHETIC ARM & DEMONSTRATE FUNCTIONING PROSTHETIC TO JUDGE SET UP DEXTERITY MATERIALS (NUTS, BOLTS, TESTING BOARD) AS DESIRED & TESTING AREA STAND OUTSIDE WORKING AREA & NOTIFY JUDGE WHEN READY (IF NOT READY IN 1 MINUTE= MISTRIAL)

17 TASK DETAILS CONTINUED JUDGE STARTS TRIAL & TIMER 2 MINUTES TO SECURE ALL 3 HEX NUTS & BOLTS TO BOARD DEVICE MUST REMAIN IN TESTING AREA & FLAT BOTTOM BOARD IN CONTACT WITH TABLE (BOARD CAN BE ROTATED) GRAB 1 HEX BOLT BY THE TERMINAL DEVICE & INSERT INTO PRE-DRILLED HOLE GRAB HEX NUT WITH TERMINAL DEVICE & SECURE ONTO BOLT *note this year’s competition does not include use of wrenches (photo is from )

18 TASK DETAILS CONTINUED… HEX NUT MUST COMPLETELY PASS A MARKING ON BOLT TO BE SCORED IN THE HIGHER ZONE SELECT ANY ORDER TO COMPLETE TASK CAN HOLD THE BOLT WITH UNENCUMBERED HAND ONLY BY THE HEAD OF BOLT; NO TWISTING OF BOLT WITH THIS HAND ALLOWED!!
