The goal of TechARM™ is to empower users with limb differences to regain their independence and individuality. The solution will specialize in adapted grips that include a variety of motions to complete everyday tasks. Our product includes 4 unique features: adduction/abduction, an AI-enabled proximity distance sensor, manual wrist rotation, and an adjustable forearm cinching mechanism. The distance sensor will create a grip as it senses objects approaching the palm, requiring no input from the user. TechARM™ will be targeting adults who desire advanced prosthetics at a low cost as well as those in developing countries as our product will decrease in cost per unit over time. Our product will not only include a variety of grips for function and customizations for appearance and fit, but it will also contain a maintenance kit. This kit will include a 6-32 Allen wrench, extra dual lock tape, and additional padding for the bicep attachment for the user to adjust and fix the product at their convenience. TechARM™ prides itself on designing intuitively to highlight the capability and independence of the user.
