The purpose of the pGrip is to be a grip assistive device for people suffering from Muscular Dystrophy and will aid in grasping common household objects. It will be a glove-like exoskeleton to amplify weak grip strength into a significantly greater force. Given these individuals have weakened muscles, lifting may cause fatigue-induced shaking. The pGrip will also incorporate an optional tremor reducing device to help remedy this issue. Ideally, it will remain low profile and low weight, given consumers would not benefit from unnecessary bulk. Compared to competing designs, the pGrip is unique as it will be the only device consisting of both a grip assist and hand tremor reducer. A functional glove should be comfortable and feel as a natural extension for the user when being worn. This model would also allow for prioritizing accessibility through wearability and financial acquisition.
