In this paper, a new hand exoskeleton device using a three-layered sliding spring mechanism is presented. In contrast to state of the art hand exoskeleton mechanisms (typically link, wire or pneumatically driven), the proposed mechanism is driven through large deformations of the compliant mechanism body. The mechanism can be made compact and lightweight by(More)
Bovine dentin was cut by hand with carbide burs and two cutting procedures while the rotational handpiece speed and the applied load were simultaneously monitored. It became evident that the maximum applied load during intermittent cutting varied from approximately 30 to 40 gm, whereas that during successive cutting ranged from approximately 20 to 60 gm. It(More)
The primary author, an experienced dentist, cut bovine enamel and dentine horizontally and vertically with diamond points driven by an air-turbine, while the rotational cutting speeds and applied loads were simultaneously monitored. Three cutting techniques employed here were successive cutting with moderate force (S-m); intermittent cutting with moderate(More)
This study examined the relationship between mercury content and mercury evaporation from amalgams during setting. Two different types of commercial high-copper amalgams (single composition and admixed types) were used. Cylindrical specimens of each amalgam were prepared with five different mercury contents according to ADA Specification No.1. Specimens(More)
The amount of Hg vapor released from "synthesized" gamma 1 with 1% (wt) Pd was reported to be less than 30% of that from gamma 1 with no Pd. This study tested the hypothesis that Hg evaporation from Pd-containing amalgams decreases with Pd concentration and that In also reduces Hg vapor. Specimens (4 mm dia, 8 mm long) were prepared by triturating(More)
