Auxillary arm of joints and drive unit is driven by robotic technology

This auxillary arm is created using robolink technology from igus.
A video from igus shows how its robolink technology is used to create an auxillary arm for wheelchair users.

The arm is made up of articulated, multi-axis joints and drive unit, with a three-jaw angle gripper.

The modular design produces five degrees of freedom, with variable arm lengths for pick and place operations. When equipped with a direct drive incorporated within the joint, the modules can be combined to create lightweight and cost-effective articulated arms, says the company, with up to six degrees of freedom.
