Sock it up! 🏅

Finalist: UIST 2018 Student Innovation Contest
Older Adults (>65 years), Physically Challenged population (Amputee) or Population facing challenge to reach their feet, finds it difficult to wear socks and shoes. We aim to address this issue with design of a robot who can help mentioned population to complete this - day to day life task . Users of this robot can wear their own shoes by simply placing their feet in robot hands. The robot will facilitate the motion of the foot off the ground more easily. Also, the shoe connects to the robot with a flexible support and a drivable and frictional ankle joint.
