Artificial Muscle-Operated (Amo) Arm

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a prosthetic arm that is controlled by the user’s brain signals, and powered by compressed air for individuals who have had an arm amputated or who are otherwise missing an arm. Undergraduate biomedical engineering students; Thiago Caires and Michal Prywata, from Toronto’s Ryerson University have created the Artificial Muscle-Operated (AMO) Arm. The AMO arm offers a greater range of movement than traditional prostheses, doesn’t require

DEKA Arm System

The DEKA Arm System, or the LUKE arm is an advanced prosthetic arm that has up to 10 powered degrees of freedom including a powered shoulder, humeral rotator, and multi-movement wrist. The arm offers state-of-the-art flexibility, strength, and dexterity to provide greater independence for people with forearm through shoulder-level amputations. The LUKE arm incorporates the latest technology in electronics, motors, batteries, and materials. It is a less-than-eight-pound prosthetic, advanced robot


The iARM is a robotic arm designed for use by individuals with upper extremity amputation, severe physical or upper extremity disabilities, or spinal cord injury. The iARM is designed to perform the functions of an arm and hand, including grasping objects using a gripper and moving those objects once they are held. Common arm positions may be stored to easily regain frequent positions. The iARM can lift up to 1.5 kilograms (kg). Using the optional bracket, the iARM can be attached to a powered w

Mind Controlled Bionic Hand

The Mind Controlled Robotic Arm is a prototype designed to help stroke victims retrain their brain to use their paralyzed upper extremities. The device comprises of a cap containing electrodes to pick up the brain signal and send it to a moveable brace on the arm. The device detects the wearer's intention to open or close the paralyzed hand, and moves it accordingly. Although in general the right side of the brain controls the left and vice versa, the developers discovered that a small area of t

Obi - Robotic Feeder

The Obi is a robotic dinner plate device with a human-like arm that is design to help feed users with impaired movement. The obi includes a rotating serving dish with four compartments for different foods, as well as a robotic-arm fitted with a spoon. The device works by indicating it where to deliver the food by moving its robotic arm. After that, the robot is able to replicate the process, with users able to toggle between the different compartments and tell the arm when to feed. Functions inc

Robotic Arm Prosthesis

---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a robotic arm prosthesis with tactile sensors for use by individuals with paralysis, amputation, or mobility disabilities. Researchers at Georgia Tech are developing a new technology that allows an individual with quadriplegia to use a robot to perform tasks such as pulling a blanket over themselves and grabbing a cloth to wipe their face. This robotic arm prosthesis is unique as it was created with tactile sensing material across its en
