People's working capability is badly affected when they suffer an amputated arm. Artificial replacements with prosthetic devices to get a satisfactory level of performance for essential functions with the currently available prosthetic technology are very difficult. Myoelectric arm prostheses are becoming popular because they are operated by a natural contraction of intact muscles. Hence, SEMG based artificial arm was fabricated. The system consists of different electronic and mechanical assemblies for operation of hand utilizing microcontroller in order to have minimum signal loss during its processing. With the help of relay switching connected to low power DC motor, system is capable of opening and closing of grip according to individual wish.
