Who We Are

Emma’s Magic Arms

The story begins with a 3-year-old girl who couldn’t lift her arms. She inspired some very smart people to take assistive technology where it’s never been.

Emma used her arms for the first time with the aid of a stationary, metal robotic exoskeleton called the WREX. It worked, but it became clear that stationary, metal and robotic were not good fits for a 25-pound bundle of energy who was determined to defy her genetic condition.

The inspired solution: a wearable, 3D printed plastic device that Emma dubbed her “Magic Arms.”

Now the Magic Arms for the World organization wants to take that design to the next level, and make the technology more accessible to more kids.
