This paper presents the development of a ring-shaped, IMU-based sensor node used to enable the control of a robotic arm by a disabled person using residual finger motion. The system consists of the sensor node, the control board (base station) and the robotic arm. The finger's position angles are used to control the arm's axis projection speeds.
