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


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

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
