Abstract

•A new apparatus to measure the stiffness of astronauts' EVA glove is presented.•Torque required to flex joints of the index finger of the EVA glove is measured.•The stiffness equation of the PIP joint of the Orlan-DM EVA glove is presented.•The presented apparatus can be used for direct comparison of different EVA gloves.
