Robotic Hand for Dangerous Missions
Exohand_robotic hand
Pneumatically-driven exoskeleton remotely controlled by human hand
By RBR Staff


The hand allows for fairly precise movements to be transferred to the robot glove. Better still, the system can amplify the force the user exerts to ensure, for instance, that crucial pieces are not dropped. The user also feels what the robot feels through force feedback via two-way pneumatics, so they don’t overdo it.

The glove is constructed to perfectly fit the human operator:  a scan of the user’s hand is made and a 3D printer creates the ExoHand in polyamide plastic. Eight pneumatic actuators move the fingers, so that they can be opened and closed.
