Evaluation of an instrumented glove for hand-movement acquisition.
The objective of this research was to investigate the feasibility of using the Humanware Humanglove, a 20-position sensors glove, to measure fingers' ROM, with particular regard to measurement repeatability, and demonstrate that, in principle, the glove could be used as goniometric device.
