    Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Essential Tremor (ET) are the most common tremor syndromes in the world. Currently, a specific Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (123I-FP-CIT SPECT) has proven to be an effective tool ...
  • Virtual human hand: grasps and fingertip deformation 

    Peña Pitarch, Esteve; Al Omar Mesnaoui, Anas; Alcelay Larrión, José Ignacio; Vives i Costa, Jordi (Springer, 2019-07-24)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    The objective of this paper is to simulate the human hand when grasping an object, considering the angles of the finger joints and the fingertip deformation. To study the grasp of an object used in activities of daily life ...
