This paper deals with the functionality of a new mechanical hand, able to grasp objects of generic shape. In its morphology it is similar to the human hand; in its functionality it is adaptable as a robot extremity or, with some specific devices, as a prosthesis. This paper examines the mechanical aspects of this mechanism, in order to point out some basic characteristics. Its properties might be considered for a development of its adaptability to multiple functions, in robotics and maybe in orthopaedics.
