Robotic arm to help kids improve handwriting
Researchers have developed a robotic arm that helps children to practice and improve their hand coordination. The innovative new technology has been trialled for the first time in a UK school. Researchers from the University of Leeds, Bradford Institute of Health Research and University of Indiana (US) have been working on creating a haptic robotic training system that gives children feedback and scaffolds their performance as they practice hand and wrist movements commonly made during handwriting and other manual tasks.
