Abstract
The aim of this work is to show a novel environment to simulate and calculate the forces exerted in each point of contact when grasping with power or precision. Virtual hand was designed and validated with 25 degrees of freedom (DOF) without the 2 DOF for the wrist. Based on this model the finger’s contact when grasping with power is three contacts for each finger and two for the thumb. These contacts are in the proximal phalanx, middle phalanx, and distal phalanx for each finger, except the t...
