Robo-Glove Wearable Human Grasp Assist Device

In collaboration with General Motors, researchers at the NASA Johnson Space Center designed and developed Robo-Glove, a wearable human grasp assist device. Robo-Glove helps reduce the grasping force needed to operate tools for an extended time or for repetitive motion tasks. Robo-Glove markets include manufacturing, automotive, and hazardous material handling. The wearable device also has potential applications in prosthetic devices and rehabilitation aids. The Robo-Glove is a patented technology available for commercial technology licensing here .
