Teen Builds Amazing Exoskeleton Glove for the Disabled

Posted on the 20 September 2013 by Nrjperera @nrjperera


18-year-old Charalampos Ioannou from Greece recently received recognition from around the world for inventing a brilliant exoskeleton glove that helps disabled people to use their hands to do everyday things like picking up eggs or hammer down nails, after it was featured on International Google Science Fair.

“The aim of the project is to invent a metallic exoskeleton glove that assists, supports and enhances the movement of the human palm, in order to help people who suffer from upper hand disabilities,” according to GSF 2013 project page.

Ioannou originally wanted to build this to help out his grandmother who suffers from a disabled hand. But, that good gesture alone brought him this far to score a spot on GSF 2013 and also to become the youngest speaker to take the stage at Athens TEDx conference.
