Roth Hand (Progressive and Independent Finger Movement)
by fflood, published
This is a design for progressive movement fingers that use small linkage devices inside each finger. These linkage may need to be printed in metal or made in metal in order to hold up to real usage. This design also takes advantage of a lateral pivot at the top of the wrist joint. This enables progressive and independent gripping of each finger. This object is still in testing phase so beware.
See http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:221560 for updated finger with larger range of movement.
This design was created by Bob Roth from Tulsa, OK. and he has been gracious enough to share the design with our community of makers.
This project is an extension of the work being done by Robohand, Ivan Owen, Jorge Zuniga, and the e-NABLE group. This work is being done in my lab at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
