Smart Auxiliary Assistive Robotic Arm (SAARA)

Problem Statement

Lack of Affordable Robotic Arm Equipment in Singapore

Assistive auxiliary robotic arms facilitate wheelchair-bound persons with movement disabilities to independently overcome obstacles and accomplish various tasks. However,  the cost of owning such an equipment is a hefty sum of $70,000 in the current market. Thus, to date, the existing market product has a total of zero users in Singapore.

Solution

Creation of a more Affordable Robotic Arm

To improvise and replicate an assistive auxiliary arm available in the market to provide a more affordable alternative to persons with upper limb disabilities to gain independence in performing simple daily tasks.

Outcomes

SAARA is able to aid Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in carrinfg out daily tasks independently eg. picking items, aid drinking and opening and closing doors.
