Helping humanity reach the impossible since 2006.
The original purpose of the KINOVA JACO®Assistive robot is the same today as it was back then, but our signature arm has only evolved and become more refined over time. Each arm features six-axis movement corresponding to shoulder, elbow and wrist, allowing 16 movements in all to mimic the smoothness and versatility of a fully functioning human arm. Made from lightweight carbon fibre, our robotic arm is durable, light to the touch and weather-resistant, and comes standard with our grippers, meaning its three flexible fingers will firmly grasp objects of varying shapes and sizes.
Almost any power wheelchair is capable of full robotic arm integration, and uses its own accumulator to provide energy to the arm. The KINOVA JACO® Assistive robot can be mounted on your wheelchair and controlled using the chair’s joystick, head control, sip-and-puff/head array systems or almost any other interface, in any combination. The arm is mounted on your wheelchair to minimize overall width, allowing all seat movements to ensure clearance for transfer and other equipment, as well as maximizing the arm’s reach to access even the floor.
Empower yourself with our robotic arms
Take back control of your activities of daily living. If you’re living with limited or no mobility as result of any of the following conditions, our KINOVA JACO®Assistive robot can improve your daily capabilities: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, quadriplegia, upper limb amputation or spinal cord injury.
