Problem Statement​

• Existing prostheses, especially advanced bionic myoelectric arms, are expensive and not tailored to kids.

• Traditional prostheses do not accommodate children's growth, requiring frequent costly replacements.

• A typical scaled-down adult prosthesis doesn't meet the unique needs of children.


• Develop a cost-efficient, modular myoelectric prosthesis designed specifically for children.

• Create a prosthesis that grows with the child, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

• Design the prosthesis to be emotionally engaging, encouraging a positive outlook on disability.


• The prosthesis will have an adjustable design, allowing it to adapt to a child's growth.

• It will be modular, enabling cost-effective updates and customization.

• Emphasis on intuitive control for ease of use and muscle memory development.

• The design will be fun and playful to foster emotional connection and encourage social integration.


• A more affordable bionic arm option for underprivileged children in India.

• Enhanced functionality with intuitive controls, allowing for intricate movements and object handling.

• Longer lifespan due to adjustable design, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

• Aesthetic design to promote a positive and inclusive attitude towards disability.


• Allow children to grow and adapt with a single type of prosthesis.

• Encourage a playful and positive perspective on disabilities.

• Reduce the stigma associated with prosthetic limbs through innovative design and customization options.
