The first paper on Bubble Artificial Muscles is now available online

The Bristol team have developed new artificial muscles which will be included in The Right Trousers to help people walk, climb stairs, and stand up! These new Bubble Artificial Muscles are thin, light, and super strong, making them perfect for inclusion in wearable robotic clothing.

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.
