Abstract
State of art of modern hand prosthesis is populated by sophisticate hi-tech poly-articular hands which usually offer a broader set of movement capabilities, with the possibility to control up to 4 or 5 motors and achieve several different postures. Unfortunately these device are not so easy to control. A novel emerging trend is oriented towards a strong simplification of the mechanical design (through i.e. underactuation mechanisms), but still maintaining a good level of performance. A successful example is the SoftHand2 Pro, a 19 Degrees of Freedom (DoF) anthropomorphic hand which, using two motors, can move along two different synergistic directions, to perfor...
