The Right Trousers

Dr Ailie Turton is involved in the development of wearable soft robotics that help people to live independently.

This cross-university project is led by The University of Bristol, with UWE Bristol, The University of Nottingham and others. The new technology will help people to walk, get up from a chair, and climb stairs.
