Abstract

The study aims to ensure that a reduction in tactile sensitivity is in fact causing a reduction in gloved performance, and to measure this reduction in tactile sensitivity through grasp force at the hand/handle interface under a variety of performance conditions. The effects that glove type, load lifted, handle size, and handle orientation have on the initial grasping force were determined. From the experiments, it is clear that when people perform a grasping action, the maximal exertions are affected differently by gloves than sub-maximal or 'just holding type exertions'.
