The palmar pinch force estimation is highly relevant not only in biomechanical studies, the analysis of sports activities, and ergonomic design analyses but also in clinical applications such as rehabilitation, in which information about muscle forces influences the physician's decisions on diagnosis and treatment. Force transducers have been used for such purposes, but they are restricted to grasping points and inevitably interfere with the human haptic sense because fingers cannot directly… CONTINUE READING
