Prosthetics is that area of medical industry which deals with artificial limbs. These are used for those who lost their limbs. But there are many people who have their limbs and cannot use them due to neurological disorders. The current work aims at achieving a solution to the people who have neurological Disorder problem by using Additive manufacturing technology i.e. 3D Printing. The mechanism is initially modeled in Pro/Engineer. The models are then fabricated in 3D printing using PLA material.
