Here's a little history about me and my robo arm project. I have a very rare form of ALS. The symptoms are the same but the deterioration is much slower. I was diagnosed at 17 and I am now 57.
For the past 7 years I've known my arms would weaken to the point I won't be able to feed myself. For the past 30 years Independent living has been my top priority in life. For the past 3 years I've been developing a robotic arm to assist me in day to day life. For at least 10 years I've used lightweight teachers to pick up things I accidentally drop on the floor.
