Featured Article: A Wearable Soft Robot for Movement Assistance on Eyelid Closure
This article presents a facial wearable robot to support eyelid movement on the paralyzed side of patients with hemifacial paralysis. The robot has a novel mechanism for supporting eyelid movement and is made from soft material. Researchers could control deformation so that it is tailored to eyelid movement with simple rotational input at two hinged ends. This system provides appropriate support for eyelid movement in a non-invasive and gentle manner, based on voluntary eyelid movement on the healthy side.
