We are a team of home-educated boys. We now know a lot about how Mindstorms robots work and we enjoy trying to build a robot that is technically advanced. We also know that there is a lot we don't know!

We have come up with some good inventions before but this is the first time we thought we could patent our invention. We have learnt a lot in the Body Forward season about materials science, electronics and the warmth and helpfulness of the engineering community. We are grateful to the FLL Body Forward challenge for starting a process which has resulted in the design of Gripassist, a device which will make a difference to millions of lives.
