  • Rehabilitation Robotics: Assemble and Program a Robotic Glove

    January 25, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Event run by TechGirlz.

    In this workshop, students will assemble a soft robotic glove and program its sensors into a game directed at rehabilitating dexterity movements, commonly affected after a stroke. Students will learn about the importance of robotics in rehabilitation aid.

    Systems, like the robotic glove they create, use games to provide incentive which significantly improves the effectiveness of regular rehabilitation. By developing their own robotic glove, students will learn the basics in circuitry, design, and Arduino programming, as well as the importance of rehabilitation robotics with their own basic gamified rehabilitative system.

    Please bring a laptop with a USB port.

    Please send an email to Donna Cusimano if you have any questions. Thanks!
