Abstract: There has been a continuous effort by researchers to develop multi-fingered robot hands for variety of applications. Some of these hands are meant for industrial applications while thers are used for orthopedic rehabilitation of humans. However the degree of success to develop an anthropomorphic robot hand in close resemblence with a typical human hand has not been satisfactory. In the present work an attempt has been made to design a robot hand having five fingers with 25 degrees of freedom by closly following the anatomy of human hand.The kinematic analysis of the hand offers confirmative results for effective graspingand manipulating objects.
