A planar three degree-of-freedom parallel manipulator has been extensively studied as the fundamental example of parallel manipulators. It has been proven from the authors' previous work (1996) that when three identical joint compliances are attached to the three base joints of the mechanism in its symmetric configurations, this mechanism possesses a completely decoupled compliance characteristic at the object space, which is the important operational requirement for remote centre of compliance device. In this paper, we concern about the adjustability of the output compliance matrix of this mechanism by employing redundancy on either joint compliances or on actuators. Two approaches are suggested to achieve this purpose: 1) the stiffness modulation is achieved through purely, redundant passive springs or decoupled feedback stiffness gains; and 2) the stiffness modulation is achieved through antagonistic actuation of the system actuators. General stiffness models are derived for both cases. Based on these stiffness models, stiffness modulation algorithms are formulated
