In the second episode of our new series “Ryan’s Robotics” on the SMA News Today YouTube channel, I talk about how my JACO robotic arm works. Like I talked about in my first video, the arm is mounted to the side of my wheelchair and controlled by my joystick. Here, I explain how to switch modes on it and operate each of its joints.
I demonstrate how to move the arm up and down, turn the wrist, and move the fingers. With its different modes and functions, the arm allows me to use it for a variety of tasks in my everyday life.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments, and feel free to ask me any questions you have about my JACO arm, as well as other technologies I use. Also, be sure to subscribe to the SMA News Today YouTube channel for more videos like this. Thanks for watching, and I hope you all have a great day.
