This paper presents a kinesthetic glove realized with knitted piezoresistive fabric (KPF) sensor technology. The glove forefinger area is sensorized by two KPF goniometers obtained on the same piezoresistive substrate. The piezoresistive textile is used for the realization of both electrogoniometers and connections, thus avoiding mechanical constraints due to metallic wires. Sensors are characterized in comparison with commercial goniometers. The glove behavior is pointed out in terms of methacarpal-phalangeal and interphalangeal joint movement reconstruction.

Abstract

This paper presents a kinesthetic glove realized with knitted piezoresistive fabric (KPF) sensor technology. The glove forefinger area is sensorized by two KPF goniometers obtained on the same piezoresistive substrate. The piezoresistive textile is used for the realization of both electrogoniometers and connections, thus avoiding mechanical constraints due to metallic wires. Sensors are characterized in comparison with commercial goniometers. The glove behavior is pointed out in terms of methacarpal-phalangeal and interphalangeal joint movement reconstruction.
