UTSA seniors create prototype robot to help feed disabled individuals

Sara Mustafa has vivid memories of her Uncle Omar’s final months.

It was his finish of-life battles with disease that enlivened the UTSA designing senior to work with a little group of individual understudies to make a model robot that permits impaired or deadened people to take care of themselves with practically no parental figure help, assisting them with recapturing a proportion of freedom.

Months prior to dying in 2016, Mustafa’s uncle became deadened and was subject to others as far as his might be concerned — including eating, Mustafa said.

She recalls how the once-active man struggled with his lack of autonomy. With her senior plan project not too far off, his memory rung a bell, she said.
