In this presentation we introduce the studies and the main results that the SIRSLab research group of the University of Siena carried out in the topic of human augmentation with supplementary robotic limbs. In particular we will present a wearable extra finger that allows to augment hand manipulation capabilities. The device has been successfully tested as a compensation and rehabilitation tool in Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by patients with impaired hand function, as for instance stroke patients. Beside the robotic extra finger we developed and tested different wearable interface to control it.
