Some of the latest and greatest AT devices you just have to see to believe. The OBI Self-Feeding System is one of those devices. It’s basically a robotic arm that helps people who lack upper extremity function to eat at the table with very little assistance from someone else. We’re excited to share this with you. The video is captioned and guides you through how to program and use the device and where you can find it.
