HandMorph Haptic Exoskeleton That Mimics Grasp of Children

Meet the HandMorph: a passive exoskeleton with haptic feedback that miniaturizes grasp. It uses mechanical links to transmit motion to the wearer’s fingers. It has 5 tiny anatomically correct fingers. So why build something like this? HandMorph lets researchers test things with the grasping range of a child.

Jun Nishida, Soichiro Matsuda, Hiroshi Matsui, Shan-Yuan Teng, Ziwei Liu, Kenji Suzuki, and Pedro Lopes are behind this idea.
