Cannon and Howell proposed a novel design of compliant rolling-contact element capable of performing the functions of bearing and a spring [24]. The use of contact surfaces is to enhance the functionality of compliant mechanism to be capable of performing certain kinematic tasks similar to rigid body. Contact surfaces integrating with rigid links as an overconstrained mecha‐ nism have certain kinematics and limited motion range. As shown in Fig. 5, a contactaided CFB mechanism with limited motion range of 90°.
