Detecting the grasp force

DWQA QuestionsCategory: KINARM End-Point LabDetecting the grasp force
Hi, I am using a end point kinarm. I am trying to calculate the force exerted by the subject when grasping the robot handle. I could not find any parameter to detect this variable. Is there a way to calculate the grasp force in the kinarm? Thank you, Yokhesh

Dear Yokhesh,
It sounds like you’re hoping to output grip force? Is that correct? If so, you are right, the handle of the end-point robot does not measure grip force. However there is an alternate handle available from a third party that does measure grip force. You can find it on the web here: http://www.arsalis.com/kingrip.html Please let me know if you would like an introduction to the company.

Thanks,
Anne
