For the millions of children with neuromuscular disorders, debilitating weakness in the arms and shoulders makes everyday tasks nearly impossible. With Magic Arms, the impossible becomes possible.
Magic Arms is a gravity-balancing, exoskeletal device thatâs been proven to work on over 100 kids so far. Our goal is to make this technology available to every child who needs it.
By giving kids arms that defy gravity, we can empower them to feed themselves, reach their toys, put on their socks, blow bubbles and hug the people they love.

âThe essence of the Magic Arms is about empowerment. Itâs about energy. Itâs about replacing energy that isnât there for these particular children.â -Whitney Sample, Design Research Engineer
