A new haptic device : the DigiHaptic

The DigiHaptic is a three degrees of freedom ground-based device that is comprised of three levers associated with the thumb, forefinger and ring fingerĀ [33] [16]. Each lever is associated with a DC motor to provide force feedback. This allows the device to be used in isotonic and elastic mode with force feedback and isometric mode. Moreover to make the use of the device more intuitive, we arranged the levers to get an isomorphism between fingers and objects movements.

Force feedback is usually done on isotonic device. We proposed a law to provide force feedback in elastic modeĀ [32] [15].
