New ExoHand Paves the Way for Automation

Festo, a German engineering company which focuses on automation technology, recently showcased their new ExoHand at the Hanover Trade Fair.

This mechanical exo-skeletal glove uses air pressure to boost the grip of a human hand, which can increase factory worker productivity as well as help rehabilitate patients who recently experienced a stroke.

Festo uses nature as an inspiration for its technological creativity, working on numerous bionic projects as well as energy efficiency, industrial training and education.
