The plastic joints are connected by aluminium tubes, which can be manufactured in specific lengths for each articulated arm. To reduce weight further, there are also options for carbon fibre or reinforced plastic tubes. The actuating wires are guided through the arms. These are specially developed Bowden cables. This method allows flexibility in the design phase, from 1 DOF up to a maximum of 6 DOF
