In this work, an experimental study on the grip of complex shape objects by the developed hand module of the bionic prosthesis has been conducted. A description of the seven-degree-of-freedom (7- DOF) control system of the hand module has been presented. The hand module is designed for the use in forearm and shoulder prostheses; finger modules can be used separately in the manufacture of hand prostheses. Developed programming units can be used in the building control systems of the gripping anthropomorphic manipulator, which has a kinematic structure similar to the human hand but a different number of controlled and dependent degrees of freedom. The project aims at the development of a bionic forearm prosthesis which has reliability and performance close to a healthy human hand.
