Hello, and welcome to the first episode of my new video series “Ryan’s Robotics” on the SMA News Today YouTube channel. In this series, I will show you how certain technologies help me live more independently. In particular, I will talk about my JACO robotic arm, a device I acquired in 2018.
In this first video, I show you all some of the things I use my robotic arm for, such as getting a drink of water and operating my tv remote. This device is mounted to the side of my wheelchair, and I’m able to control it through my joystick. Throughout this series, I’ll talk more in-depth about how the arm works and the things I use it for.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments section, and connect with me directly here in the forums.
