Well, it’s time once again to pack up everything and head down to Haiti! It has been a little over a month since our last trip and we are ready to present Chris with his final device. We have packed many things including …

  • The complete arm
  • 3 spare sockets
  • 3 spare forearms
  • 1 spare gripper hand
  • Extra foam
  • Harnesses, straps, and extra material
  • A variety of tools including screwdrivers, calipers, and a protractor
  • A hairdryer
  • Paint and paintbrushes
  • 3D structure scanner
  • Camera and GoPro
  • Soccer ball
  • A partridge in a pear tree



Emily and Joel will arrive in Milot this afternoon and depart on Friday. This week, the goal is to fit the new arm, test its efficacy in different scenarios, and make final adjustments. We will also begin to plan for the next steps in our work with Chris.

You have to hand it to these strapping young students that they have a firm grasp on what will enable their success. (I will not apologize for this sentence)
