The many degrees of freedom of the hand and arm afford the wide range and rich adaptability of human grip configurations in action. Several classification schemes of human grip configurations have been proposed, but none is based on scaling laws of physical biology, which are well established for other categorizations of fundamental physical activities such as locomotion. This study examined the preferred human grip configurations used to displace to a new location cubes that varied… CONTINUE READING
