In the future, workers will wear smart robots and exoskeletons to help them move heavy items and get work done without putting unnecessary stress on their body. The RoboGlove is such a device. It uses sensors, actuators and tenders comparable to the nerves, muscles and tendons in a human hand. It improves efficiency while reducing fatigue in hand muscles.
GM is planning to use these robotic gloves in some of its plants. Such devices can also be used in rehab.
