The RIT Arm is intended for transradial arms: intact elbows, but no wrist or hand.

Elbow motion actuates the mechanical hand

The RIT Arm is an adaptive device people an arm with an elbow but no wrist. It can be actuated by bending the residual elbow (video) or via a bowden cable connected to a shoulder harness (video). The arm was originally developed by e-NABLE members at Rochester Institute of Technology (video).
