TexRobots Team (Kadir Özlem, Ayşe Feyza Yılmaz, Fidan Khalilbayli, Ömür Fatmanur Erzurumluoğlu) from ITU Soft Sensors Lab led by Assist. Prof. Dr. Gökhan İnce (Department of Computer Engineering) and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Özgür Atalay (Department of Textile Engineering) won the first prize in the Biotechnology and Innovation Competition with their project titled Texrobot for Hand Paralysis Rehabilitation.
In this project, a soft exoskeleton robot was developed for hand rehabilitation of paralyzed patients by developing textile-based seamless knitted actuators.
We congratulate the TexRobots Team and professors leading the team and wish them continued success.
