I'm a phd student and I'm working on human finger movement simulation:
Using a simple finger model (3 rods, 3 hinges) I've move the finger
following two different principles:
1) the minimum angular displacement
2) the minimum cartesian jerk on the fingertip position
I've noted different results on angular dispositions during movement.

>From a physiologic point of view (on your experiences) which is the
hypothesis that grant a more natural movement (and natural movement
means also long life of muscles?): no. 1 or no. 2? Please on your
answer consider your experience and not literature tendency

Thanks for your attention and possible answer,

Emanuele Lindo

"What is the formula for the journey to the ultimate meaning of reality?

Living the real.
The only condition for being truly and faithfully religious is
to live always the real intensely, without negating or forgetting

(The Religious Sense, McGill-Queen's University Press, 1997, p. 108)
