The Right Trousers @ RoboSoft 2018

Richard Diteesawat from the University of Bristol team presented the team’s research on Bubble Artificial Muscles at the RoboSoft conference in Livorno, Italy! Well done Richard!

Bubble Artificial Muscles are a new type of pneumatic actuator that are thin, light, and super strong!

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.
