Project on Wearable Assistive Devices for Manipulation Funded by the NSF under the National Robotics Initiative
Our lab is kicking off a new project that aims to build wearable assistive devices for dexterous manipulation. Such devices could help motor-impaired people regain use of their hands, or able-bodied individuals engaged in physically demanding or highly repetitive work. This project is supported by the National Science Foundation and is part of the National Robotics Initiative. We are thrilled to participate in this program by building new robotic devices that directly and intimately interact with people.
