Dexterous Hand

Dexterous Hand
The Shadow Robot company has developed the worlds most advanced Dexterous Hand.

The Hand is driven from a block of Air Muscles mounted behind the Hand on the "forearm". Pneumatic valves and initial control software are provided. Unless otherwise stated, the joints are driven by an opposing pair of muscles, permitting variable compliance at the joint; however, some of the finger joints are driven by a single muscle with return spring.

Now available for purchase.
