Mechanism design for haptic handwriting assistance device
MetadataShow full item record
One of the applications of haptic technology is in education and training. Handwriting for first year-elementary students has been included in the curriculum for some years in Turkey as the first and only writing skill to be taught. Providing these students with a haptic assistance device during the handwriting learning process is the global aim of this work. Among the other components of the design such as electronics, controls and communication, mechanism design is a critical component to be considered for optimization of the device at different levels. This paper aims to address a solution to meet the design criteria through ergonomic design for user along with optimized force exertion capabilities.
