In the present study, we proposed a novel 3D FE fingertip model, which contains realistic anatomic micro structures and nonlinear viscoelastic material properties of the soft tissues. The model predictions on the time-dependent force responses of the fingertip subjected to the dynamic contact with a flat surface agree well with the published experimental observations.
