1. Three men and seven women, 25-40 yr of age, were asked to use the thumb and index fingers to grasp, lift, and hold the armature of a linear motor generating a 2.0-N opposing force (simulating an object weighing approximately 200 g) for 2 s. The surface in contact with the fingers was composed of smooth or polyamide plastic etched with 1.0-mm high Braille beads separated at 2.0- or 3.0-mm intervals measured from apex to apex. The surfaces were left either untreated or coated with talc, water… CONTINUE READING
