Textile-based devices for more efficient soft tissue manipulation
Soft tissue manipulation is a powerful form of mechanotherapy, with implications in physical rehabilitation, disease prevention and health promotion. Different types of devices for manipulating muscle tissue have been developed for clinical applications. Although these systems can perfectly manipulate soft tissue by applying controlled forces, they are expensive and rigid. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, the RoboTexTherapy project plans to use textile materials for developing systems that are lighter and safer for use. If successful, the project will pave the way for better and more effective therapies and devices in terms of comfort, mobility and power consumption.
