By Pierluigi Freni, Eleonora Marina Botta, Luca Randazzo

Environmental stipulations and pressurized spacesuits reveal astronauts to difficulties of fatigue in the course of long extravehicular actions, with adversarial affects specially at the dexterity, strength and patience of the fingers and palms. A state of the art exploration within the box of hand exoskeletons published that to be had items are mistaken for area purposes due to their bulkiness and mass. This booklet proposes a singular method of the advance of hand exoskeletons, in accordance with an leading edge delicate robotics idea that is dependent upon the exploitation of electroactive polymers working as sensors and actuators, on a mix of electromyography and mechanomyography for detection of the user’s will and on neural networks for regulate. the result's a layout that are supposed to increase astronauts’ functionality in the course of extravehicular actions. In precis, some great benefits of the defined procedure are a low-weight, high-flexibility exoskeleton that permits for dexterity and compliance with the user’s will.
