Chair in Emerging Technologies 2018
Professor Rossiter’s focusses on a new electro-origami artificial muscle technology that can lift 1000 times its own weight. In addition, Professor Rossiter has demonstrated the technologies underlying the soft robotic Right Trousers, garments which will help elderly people and people with disabilities move more freely and maintain their independence. These have been reported widely, including on BBC News and across the internet, and have been exhibited at the British Science Festival. Professor Rossiter will develop the Right Trousers technologies into wearable assistive and rehabilitative clothing for physiotherapy and self-guided physical recovery at home.
