Robotic Arm Gives Teen More Independence

gosselin_dora_aDurham, N.C– Doctor Dora Gosselin of the Orthopaedic Department in Duke’s Children Hospital helped to secure a robotic arm for her patient Kelby Oakley.  Oakley (15) has muscular dystrophy, is wheelchair bound and lost the ability to use his arms.  Gosselin saw the robotic arm that attaches to a wheelchair at a conference and  managed to secure a donation to allow Oakley to have the opportunity to have more independence again.  For more check out the story on WRAL.
