Abstract

The purpose of this study is to present the evaluation method of contact resistance between fingers and building elements from the view point of motion support and posture control. First, sensory tests to make evaluation scales from the view point of motion support and posture control with fingers were carried out. Next, the contact resistance meter that could measure the contact resistance of samples was developed. Then, coefficients of contact resistance of samples were searched with the contact resistance meter by various pull angle and vertical loads. Also, the relations were investigated between contact resistance and evaluation scales from the view point of motion support and posture control. As a result, the measurement method of contact resistance of building elements and members with fingers was presented.
