When we manipulate objects in our day-to-day life, we perceive information on the object via force feedback that we sense with our sensorimotor system. However, in virtual reality, we lack these forces, which makes it more challenging to interact with the digital world. Wearables, such as hand exoskeletons, can provide force feedback in VR....

For patients with a hand disability, hand exoskeletons can improve their ability to perform activities of daily living.<br/>Its complicating that on the hand little space is available to build an exoskeleton. So, moment arms of actuators must be small. This complicates generating adequate moments. Strong actuators may be a solution, but they add...

Wearable robots assist individuals with sensorimotor impairment in daily life, or support industrial workers in physically demanding tasks. In such scenarios, low mass and compact design are crucial factors for device acceptance. Remote actuation systems (RAS) have emerged as a popular approach in wearable robots to reduce perceived weight...

In the following study, a new concept of an assistive hand exoskeleton device for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) patients is presented. Due to the nature of this disease (causes progressive muscle degeneration from a young age of five years old), the requirements for such a device are very demanding, with extreme space and weight limitations,...
