An arm that can help the disabled or enhance the already existing strength of people with two arms. Unfortunately, doesn't include a hand.

I have started buying stuff for the arm. I've decided that I'm going to use a solenoid valve to control the airflow, and I got a 18 dollar 5 way one (no idea if it works or if it's good or not, but oh well). I've loosely adhered to an instructables design, but have changed it quite a bit with different end connectors, so really the only similarities are the mesh sheath and the rubber tubing inside. This is about a week after I first started designing the arm.
