A robotic arm is currently working to save the lives of children affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Head down to Sydney's Circular Quay and you'll find The Most Powerful Arm. A robotic construction of bamboo and aluminium, it doesn't look particularly strong — but this arm is trying to save lives.
Save Our Sons is working to raise AU$1.75 million to go towards research, clinical trials and family support for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an incurable degenerative condition that affects one in 3500 boys, with an average life expectancy of around 25 years of age. If the Australian Government could match the funds from Save Our Sons, more could be done to help these boys.
