---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a self-powered exoskeleton arm orthosis for individuals with upper extremity and neurological disabilities. The Titan Arm is an untethered, self-powered exoskeleton arm that can be constructed for less than $2,000. To wield this device, users attach the cable-driven mechanical appendage to one arm of the user with straps from a military-grade hiking backpack. It is controlled with a thumbstick on a nunchuck-like controller. If a load needs to be held in place, the wearer can press a button on the handheld control to stop the Titan Arm's motion. A Beagle Bone drives the logic for the setup, and it can stream data (such as range of motion) wirelessly to a computer. The creators of the Titan Arm envision this low-cost gear being used for physical therapy, assist individuals with disabilities, or assist workers who pick up heavy loads. POWER: The Titan Arm is battery-powered; development team states that one charge can last over 24 hours. WEIGHT: 18 pounds. AUTHOR: Alexis Santos.
