The Right Trousers at the UCL Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2017


Our amazing Research Fellow, Sarah Manns, presented a poster about the project at the UCL Qualitative Health Research Symposium 2017! The poster was extremely well received with lots of interest, and Sarah became known as Robot Trouser Lady at the symposium!

The Wearable Soft Robotics for Independent Living project is an £2 m ESPRC funded initiative spanning 7 universities. The aim of the project is to develop wearable soft robotic technologies which exhibit sophisticated sensing, actuation and control and can be fabricated into soft robotic clothing which will help disabled and older people move around easily and unaided. The soft robotic clothing will 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.
