The Right Trousers gets a special visit

Yesterday, The Right Trousers enjoyed a visit from The Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy! We are always happy to meet key policy makers and talk to them about Soft Robotics and Assistive 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.
