Discussion Summary

Explorer Judy tells the group that she wants a "getting up" robot to assist her back up on her feet when she is down on the floor. She describes a lack of strength lately that makes getting up and down and even in and out of the car less easy than in earlier years.

Members offer suggestions for various types of strength training exercises.
