The “Handroid” is a remotely-operable five-finger movable robot hand.It can be used in engineering environments which are inaccessible or dangerous to human hands.
Most of the existing robot hands do not use all five fingers. Other Five-finger models usually have servomotors in each joint in the fingers, which makes the robot hand heavy, complicated and expensive.ITK developed the Handroid lightweight and cheap, restricting it to basic hand. However, the range of movement does not restrict the Handroid’s capabilities and it should be able to perform to the needs of its users. Therefore, ITK used our advances in metalworking techniques and applied metals used in aircraft parts, which made the Handroid lightweight, durable and has fluid motion.
We have also developed a glove-type controller that remotely controls the Handroid by mimicking the operators hand movements.Furthermore, it is under development to be applied as a prosthetic hand, controllable by myoelectric, brain waves, and cerebral nerves.The Handroid will go beyond your expectations and will continue to be developed for further engineering and medical procedures.
