Visible to the public Programmable Second Skin For Re-Educating Injured Nervous Systems


The purpose of this grant was to develop clothing-like material with embedded sensors and synthetic muscles. When eventually worn by brain-injured individuals over one or more limbs, this clothing may be used to restore their capability for independent mobility. The material, called a "second skin", is a cyberphysical system designed as a soft robot that cooperates with the biological muscles of the body.
