Abstract/Summary

To be successful, hand exoskeletons require customisable low encumbrance design with multi-compliant materials. This paper details the modification and testing of a fused filament fabrication printer to produce three categories of multi-compliant material that can be incorporated into the design of hand exoskeletons. Demonstration of the multi-compliant material for some common problems in hand exoskeleton design are presented. This method of manufacturing multi-compliant materials could result in widespread use of exoskeleton design in both the rehabilitation and assistive fields.
