The R-ARM.

Simple. Effective. Affordable.


The R-ARM (Robotic Assistive Reaching Mechanism) is a wheelchair-mounted robotic arm that enables wheelchair-bound individuals to reach objects up to 4.5 ft away and weighing up to 3 lbs. 

The R-ARM enables users to perform basic tasks and gives them the  freedom to live their lives more independently. 


Change 5 lives.

The R-ARM was developed for the purpose of augmenting the reach and lifting capabilities of wheelchair-bound individuals. Project R-ARM is a non-profit, student run campaign founded in order to raise $25,000 to fund the development of five more R-ARM's for five people with extreme reach limitations.
