Dan’s new independence

"In 2003, I sustained a cervical-level spinal cord injury after falling from a trampoline. For 12 years, I’ve relied on the assistance of others to pick things up when I drop something on the floor, get me a drink or carry items that I can't pick up. However, my life completely changed the day JACO was in my possession."

Human-robot interaction in Nursing

"Our work is aimed at developing service robots that operate side-by-side with humans, in dynamic human environments. Safe and effective operation in close proximity to people is something that Kinova has made a priority in their design, and this is why the JACO has become the manipulator of choice for our service robot applications."
