Design of a Force-Feedback Manipulandum with Integrated Sensors

Haply Robotics is developing a haptic device that produces forces on the hand while interacting with medical simulations in virtual reality. As part of this larger project, we will design and evaluate an improved manipulandum – the stylus of the device that is held in the hand – with integrated sensors capable of measuring the grip force applied by the hand and the location of the manipulandum.
