Hello Fellow Biomch-ers,

I am working on evaluating a new design of a handle for a hammer. I would
like to get the force distribution on the hand or handle, but I am not sure
exactly how to do so. I thought that I heard somewhere there is a glove
with force sensors in it. Does this actually exist? If so, where can I find
one? I am also interested in any input as to what criteria I should look at
in evaluating the hammer.
