It is not given to everyone to be able to use his arms. When that happens, having a meal could be a nightmare and making you depend on someone.
Assistives robotic solutions exist on the market but cost several thousand dollars.
Since october 2018 and a collaborative work at the Besançon's Hacking health, we believe that it is possible to realize a low cost open assistive robotic arm for meals, simple, safe and accessible.
After a first iteration on 2019 in which we’ve designed first prototypes, developed partnerships with contributors and users and finded financials supports ;
We’re now going further with a dedicated team to advance in technical, safety and regulatory fields.
Like many others, we’re convinced that open source, collective work, digital fabrication, and distributed production are a good way to solve this problem. If you too, go for it : Join or support us !
