Connecting Humans and Robots through Wearable Haptics

Connecting Humans and Robots through Wearable Haptics

The main idea is to bring out from the lab some of the robotic experiments developed during the research activity of our academic department.
Our booth shows interactive demos related to the final outcome of the European project WEARHAP (www.wearhap.eu) about wearable haptic interfaces (devices able to provide tactile stimuli) used for interaction with highly immersive virtual environments and assistive applications.
Moreover, we will show the Robotic Sixth Finger, a novel solution to compensate hand grasping abilities for chronic stroke patients during everyday life activities. The Robotic Sixth Finger is a representative examples of the prostheses, exoskeletons, and assistive devices for upper limb rehabilitation developed within the SOFTPRO EU Project.
