Developed by NASA and General Motors, Robo-Glove technology allows individuals with jobs that require consistent or repetitive grasping to perform operations and use tools for extended periods of time without pain or muscle discomfort.

The lightweight, battery-powered Robo-Glove works in conjunction with the wearer to reduce the force needed to perform strenuous tasks. Using a series of actuators, pressure sensors, and synthetic tendons, the glove supports the hands and fingers for easier grasping. Potential use-cases for the Robo-Glove include construction, manufacturing, auto repair, hazardous materials handling, and medical applications, just to name a few.
