Extension of the master-slave manipulator concept, designed to replicate the form and functionality of the human hand, including force feedback. Eight pneumatic actuators move the exoskeleton. Sensors record the forces, angles and distances. Servopneumatic open- and closed loop control algorithms allow precise movement of the individual finger joints. The ExoHand thus supports the various possibilities for gripping and touching which a human hand has. The pneumatic components allow highly flexible and ergonomic control of the individual finger joints. High forces can thus be transmitted precisely in a small space and with a low weight without the system becoming rigid and restrictive. This flexibility is crucial in human-machine interaction, as it minimises the risk of injury.
