ELU-2 Hand

The Elu2-Hand is a human-scale anthropomorphic robot hand able to approximate real hand movements at humanlike speeds. This makes the Elu2-Hand ideal for interacting with people, and also the diverse range of tools and objects in our environment that are designed around the ergonomics of the human hand.

The Elu2-Hand has 9 degrees of freedom that are servo actuated within the hand’s volume. The hand achieves many life-like actuations through linked movements, such as; cupping of the hand and combined knuckle flexion. Whilst originally designed to fit onto the Elu2-Arm the compact Elu2-Hand design means it may be fitted onto many different robot arms.

The Elu2-Hand has been engineered for power, precision and reliability utilising a plastic-metal hybrid construction for lightness of weight combined with strength and durability.

The Elu2-Hand hand has large conformable soft pad areas that aid the hand manipulate objects and in its interact with people; the pads also provide the potential for tactile sensing. Efficient back-drivable finger transmissions enable the use of motor-current to indicate joint torque. In addition each degree of freedom has the potential for ultra reliable non-contact absolute sensing and limit switches providing extra positioning redundancy for safety critical applications.

The powerful and compact Elu2-Hand has many possible uses ranging from research through to medical applications.
