Hi,

For a research project I'm planning, I need to be able to use a device that will allow me to generate passive movements of hand/forearm or limbs in general in human subjects. In general, such devices are referred to as manipulandums (servo-controlled). I was wondering if someone could point me to a company that manufactures such or similar devices and/or the price ranges (and problems) to expect in building such a device "custom made" at our own technical facilities (I realize, with big differences in labour costs across different countries it can only be a crude estimate based on personal experience).

Any suggestions in this matter are welcome.

Thank you,
