A Movement Enhancing Glove

Charalampos Ioannou, Greece Finalist, 17-18

The aim of the project is to invent a metallic exoskeleton glove that assists, supports and enhances the movement of the human palm, in order to help people who suffer from upper hand disabilities.

The main idea of the project is that a metallic exoskeleton will be worn by the user as a glove and having placed in the right spots pressure sensors, it will be able to detect the kinetic stimulus of the user which then will be amplified with the use of servo motors.
