In this paper, a second-order system affected by perturbations is considered. A feedback control law adopting the continuous twisting algorithm is designed such that a saturated and continuous control signal is introduced to the system. In the case that a state variable is not measurable, estimate information obtained through a super-twisting observer is incorporated into the design. For the closed-loops (with and without observer), global finite-time stability properties are established. The feasibility and effectiveness of the strategy is shown employing numerical simulations.
