This study presents a system of teleoperation as a practical solution in order to eliminate the barriers and obstacles linked with deficiency of qualified medical experts in rural areas of the country. Therefore, in this work we presented an artificial robotic hand with comparable abilities to a human hand, such a multi finger gripper by using low cost artificial hand gripper (AHG). The (AHG) was printed in-house with a 3D printer. The (AHG) was designed with feasibility and flexibility for gripping activities such as opening and closing of hand by using 5 flex sensors, couple of force sensors and accelerometer sensor (master unit) positioned at each finger to measure finger flexion, extension, pressure and movements axis (x,y,z). The 5 fingers fixed activities controlled using a master unit which referred to as the smart glove. This system uses an Arduino mega microcontroller programmed for accurate and delicate detection respond via the master unit and transmitting to the slave unit. (AHG) has fast and real-time movement respond towards the activities created via the smart glove. An Ethernet shield and visual basic software were upgraded further in which master unit motion data were recorded and transmitted online through user friendly GUI system software, and the logged data can be further analyzed by other medical doctors for research, reference or diagnostic purposes.
