A Worker’s Fist in a Robotic Glove

A medical technology company specializing in robotic gloves has partnered with General Motors to design a special model for the automotive industry. Known for making healthcare devices for people with a weak grip, Bioservo Technologies will make gloves that will give assembly line workers extra strength and improve productivity. The fabric glove’s built-in sensors will record user movements. It then will reproduce these movements, while increasing their efficiency. Designed for repetitive tasks, the glove also will reduce fatigue and strain injuries.
