It moves through brain stimuli, transformed into an electric current.
The arm follows thoughts. It was invented by David Gathu and Moses Kinyua. These two young people want to contribute to improving the lives of people with disabilities in Kenya. There are more than a million of them in the African country, and most have lost their limbs to accidents or polio. “We want to help those who have lost the use of their limbs,” explains David Gathu. ” Our goal is to give them something that will help them perform their daily activities and push them to be independent.” In African countries, in addition to the daily difficulties, these people are sometimes stigmatized, even called cursed. The hope is that this arm can bring about a significant change in the way they are accepted by society as well.
