This paper presents the design and preliminary evaluation of a wearable sensorised thimble based on CySkin Technology. It can be used to monitor grasping pressures and contact area during assessment and rehabilitation of people with deficits in the neural control of movements and/or neurological diseases. The design of the wearable thimble has been thought to minimally constrain the hand movement and to provide seven distributed pressure measurements. A preliminary evaluation experiment using three wearable thimbles to grasp an object with different weight is also presented.

Abstract

This paper presents the design and preliminary evaluation of a wearable sensorised thimble based on CySkin Technology. It can be used to monitor grasping pressures and contact area during assessment and rehabilitation of people with deficits in the neural control of movements and/or neurological diseases. The design of the wearable thimble has been thought to minimally constrain the hand movement and to provide seven distributed pressure measurements. A preliminary evaluation experiment using three wearable thimbles to grasp an object with different weight is also presented.
