Prehension stability: experiments with expanding and contracting handle.

Abstract

We studied adjustments in digit forces and moments during holding a vertically oriented handle under slow, externally imposed changes in the width of the grasp. Subjects (n = 8) grasped a customized motorized handle with five digits and held it statically in the air. The handle width either increased (expanded) or decreased (contracted) at a rate of 1.0, 1… (More)
