Introduction to Finger Force

The proposed project seeks to study the force signals from the human subject’s index finger, during the finger depression and release of the keys on a computer keyboard. Based on these findings, the investigators will analyze, design, and develop an ergonomic eight key keyboard that will measure finger force signals from a subject. It is hoped that this one-year project will result in the development of new techniques to anticipate Carpal Tunnel syndrome injuries before they occur.  more detail
