In this paper, we present a Monte Carlo simulation based method to determine the workspace of spatial parallel and hybrid manipulators. The method does not need the solution of the forward kinematics problem which is often difficult for spatial multi-degree-of-freedom parallel and hybrid manipulators. The method uses the solution of the inverse kinematics problem, which is often much simpler. The method can also readily incorporate joint limits and obtain the well-conditioned workspace. The approach is illustrated with a six-degree-of-freedom hybrid parallel manipulator which is a model for a human hand with three fingers. A typical human hand geometry and the range of motion at the joints are incorporated and the inverse kinematics equations for each finger is derived and used to obtain the volume of the hybrid parallel manipulator.
