Figure 1

Hand configurations achieved using custom built orthoses.

(A) 1 DoF wrist (pronation/supination) and 3 DoFs hand (open/close and thumb independent flexion/extension and abduction), the right panel depicts the aluminium frame that, together with inextensible tape, coupled the long fingers, thus impeding relative movements. (B) 1 DoF wrist (pronation/supination) and multi DoFs hand. (C) 1 DoF wrist (pronation/supination) and 1 DoF hand (open/close) (the long fingers were coupled as in configuration (A).
