AirArm – an assistant robot
at the human-machine interface

AirArm (2009)


With the bionic AirArm, a technology-bearer has been created for the development of assistance systems – for instance for the human-machine interface in workshop manufacture or in rehabilitation. With its bionically inspired pneumatic 4-axis kinematics incorporating inherent flexibility, it combines the advantages of dynamic and flexible human arm movements with state-of-the-art industrial components from the field of automation technology and can be used for example in hazard-free interaction with humans. Further development in the direction of robotics and handling  technology will open up new applications.
