The Brainchild of Four Mechanical
Engineering Students invent Titan Arm:
In previous times, if one wanted to be able to lift more and more
weights then he would have to spend months working out at the gym.
group of engineering students at the University of Pennsylvania have
invented a bionic device. The students revealed that heavy materials
like warehouse workers, removalists and couriers can be lifted easily by
the new device.
The arm is mainly made of aluminum and steel
components and works by a DC battery power supply. The bionic device is
also known as Titan Arm. It is the invention of four engineering
students who are in their final undergraduate year. They have made an
upper-body exoskeleton that can be employed in physical therapy and
In the Cornell Cup for Innovation, the inventors had
won an amount of $10,000. The group of students has also been chosen
for Dyson award for the year 2013.
The Titan Arm ties directly to
right arm of a user and assist them in lifting weighty objects that the
user would not be able to carry under normal circumstances.
device would also provide physical rehabilitation to people who have
suffered injuries in their upper body parts and those suffering with pre
existing muscular-skeletal disorders.
