Introducing the Gramma-Jamma
The team's first invention is the Gramma-Jamma: A hand-held gripper designed to help seniors pick up small objects, without requiring precise positioning. The Gramma-Jamma is based on a concept called the "Universal Jamming Gripper", which was developed for robotic manipulators.
Our team determined that the inability to grasp small objects was a fundamental problem for senior citizens, so we researched possible methods to produce an efficient grabber. Now, using our Gramma-Jamma, seniors with tremors or poor vision are able to pick up small objects with ease.
