Description

The Right Trousers!
Posted on July 1, 2015
The Right Trousers is an EPSRC funded research project which aims to develop new soft robotic technologies that will help older people and people with disabilities to live more independently and with greater quality of life. It is a collaboration between six UK research institutes.

The soft robotic technology could help vulnerable people avoid falls by supporting them whilst walking, give people added bionic strength to move between sitting and standing positions and help people climb stairs.
