This paper presents the kinematic analysis and the mechanical design of a new tendon drive for the closed 5-bar linkage. This transmission system allows to reach higher kinematic isotropy than the direct drive of base joints, over a large workspace with respect to the device bulk. The optimum mechanism geometry has been chosen from both kinematic and dynamic perspective. As a result a new two degrees-of-freedom planar Haptic Interface with high kinematic performance has been designed.
