Multi-point haptic device
TecnolÃ³gico de Monterrey, Nuevo LeÃ³n, Mexico
The technology consists on a multi-point haptic device with 5 mechanisms, one for each finger, able to send force feedback to the user depending on the application. Each mechanism has 2 degrees of freedom, 10 for the entire system that allows a complete haptic experience to the user.
Primary Application Area: Medical Devices
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Our haptic device allows a better virtual experience due to its five contact points that allow the user to perform more activities than traditional systems. Furthermore, it can send force feedback to each user´s finger making it useful fo a broad range of applications.
