Gadget Show Live!

The Right Trousers project exhibited at the 2016 Gadget Show Live between 30 March and 3 April. We demonstrated the potential of soft robotics to help with assistance and rehabilitation.  There were over 100,000 visitors (!) and we estimate that we talked to over 4,000 of them!


Focus Group – individuals who have had strokes

Today we held our first user focus group during which eight individuals who have had strokes came to the Bristol Robotics Laboratory.  The group were incredibly generous with their time and their constructive comments.  We had a really great afternoon of discussions and brain storming and came away with a greater perspective on this important potential user group.

During the focus group Bethan Mure, a local artist, took visual notes in the form of cartoons to help us form our thoughts and to remember the key points of discussion.  Bethan’s work was superb – you can see the results below – and really captured the spirit and range of discussions.
