This robotic wheelchair arm acts like an extension of its user's body
Meet JACO: a robotic arm for wheelchair users.
JACO is remarkable: innovative, intuitive and flexible. It's creator, Charles DeGuire, was inspired by three of his uncles who had muscular dystrophy. Growing up, DeGuire witnessed their passion to live a full life — as well as the barriers they faced. For him, there's no better place to apply technology than to make daily tasks more accessible for those living with disability.
If you would have told me at 10 years old I would be building robots my entire life, I would have been so happy.- Charles DeGuire
