  7. Conclusions • Arm should possibly be mounted in rear. With standard 30” door widths not much room for arm hanging on side. • With the different chairs arm might require two different mounting devices. • One meter might be to long especially if this is geared toward ground objects • A three finger claw might prove more use full then the two finger design • I might be able to get a loner chair if interested
