Technology Tuesday

Imagine! is partnering with the University of Wyoming (Go Pokes!!!) to create assistive technology for individuals we serve. Here’s one project that is almost complete - an Assistive Technology Robot Arm and Wrist Support! The overall goal of this project was to engineer and design a system that is integrated into an existing powered wheelchair frame such that a client would have adjustable wrist support with their control hand, as well as one-touch control of a motorized robot arm capable of moving the client’s communication device in and out of their line of sight. The robot arm has the capability of holding a communication device and the ability to retract to a position that does not interfere with the client’s ability to operate the wheelchair. The arm was made for Gerald, who lives in Imagine!’s Santa Fe Group Home.
