To create natural movement patterns with the hand, the Michelangelo’s thumb, index and middle fingers are actively driven and the others passively follow. This means you can support objects from below knowing they are secure.
Intelligent Thumb Control
With the first thumb in the world which can be positioned electronically, the Michelangelo features a second thumb drive unit which can be controlled using myoelectric signals.
To avoid unnatural movements and the rest of your body having to compensate in certain actions, the hand uses multiaxial movement patterns to promote natural body posture.
The hand returns to a natural rest position when not being actively used.
An open palm and a powerful key are two of the vital grip types the Michelangelo is capable of, as it features three position modes with seven grip types.
Innovative Wrist Action
The oval AxonWrist flexes, extends, and rotates to reflect the natural movement of the wrist.
