Loughborough University experts are helping to develop robotic clothing that will enable disabled and elderly people to live independent lives. Researchers at Loughborough will be working with six other universities to develop wearable robotics to help people with mobility impairments, disabilities and age-related difficulties to move easily and unaided. The ‘smart’ clothing would support areas of limb injury or limited mobility to allow people to engage in greater degrees of physical activity. via March | Loughborough experts to develop robotic clothing for the elderly and disabled | Loughborough University.
