Robot enhances human dexterity

Researchers have developed a robot that enhances the grasping motion of people with limited dexterity.

The robot, which is worn on the wrist, features two extra fingers worn around the one’s wrist and would that help the user achieve routine tasks that generally require two hands, such as removing a bottle cap or lifting a heavy object.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers hope their work will lead to a model that can be scaled down an integrated with a watch or a bracelet.

During their project they found every human grasp
