RAS Award Recipient Featured in NSF Video
Conor Walsh, 2017 Early Academic Career Award in Robotics and Automation recipient, and his Harvard team are advancing soft, wearable robots with embedded sensors for hand and arm rehabilitation.
With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Walsh and team are developing lightweight, soft, wearable robots that people can wear all day, every day, to help them regain use of their upper extremities. Walsh wants to shift the paradigm of rehabilitation from one where the therapist manipulates the fingers and thumb through some range of motion to one where a soft robotic glove can help the patient do the work themselves.
