This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Kinematic evaluation of commercial wheelchair-mounted robotic arms ' Commercially available wheelchair-mounted robotic arms (WMRAs) are becoming more prevalent internationally but have yet to be largely developed and approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. The purpose of this study was to perform kinematic and experimental analysis of commercially available WMRAs. The goal was to quantitatively compare each device through a standardized testing protocol. The study and its procedures may serve as a source of quantitative evaluation data for commercially available and developmental WMRAs.
