We presents a study on separating a single sheet from stacked flexible sheets such as paper, conducted to develop a higher-performance page turner for the disabled. The page turner must separate a single sheet of paper from stacked multiple sheets each time a page is turned. Human dexterity separating sheets using two fingers when turn page was considered, the mechanical principle involved discussed, and experiments and theory compared.
