Abstract

A model of human finger motion actuated by tendons is described. This model allows inference of tendon movements from a study of the range of motion of a finger. Experimental data on range of motion and tendon displacements were obtained for normal and disabled fingers. The tendon displacement parameters are intended for use in the design of anthropomorphic devices. The design of one such prototype is illustrated. This prototype uses Ni-Ti shape-memory alloy as an active tendon.
