You know in a upper human limb, there's the forearm and arm, but in robotic arms what do you call the forearm and the arm of the robotic arm. What would both of them be described as? I am thinking bars, but that word doesn't seem to really describe what they are.

Here's an example sentence:

The robotic arms had several ___ attached together by huge robotic joints.


Maybe roboticists have a specific term for this, but I don't know one. I'd use one of the generic words: "segments" or "sections".
