  • Patent number: 11331811
    Abstract: A finger device including a finger segment, a finger base, a first steering control mechanism, a first actuator, a second steering control mechanism, a universal joint and a second actuator is provided. The finger base is connected to one end of the finger segment, and the first steering control mechanism is disposed on the finger base. The first actuator is configured to provide a first moment to the first steering control mechanism, so that the finger segment and the finger base have a degree of freedom in a first moving direction. The second steering control mechanism is disposed on the finger base. The second actuator is configured to provide a second moment to the universal joint. The universal joint is rotatably connected between the second actuator and the second steering control mechanism, so that the finger segment has a degree of freedom in a second moving direction.
