The motto of new era in medical sciences is “

This motto serves right when we peep into the history of the prosthetic arm.Latest in the field of development is the myoelectric arm, which gives additional grippingfacilities along with various degrees of freedom of movements.The myoelectric arm works under the influence of Electromyographic signalsextracted from skin surface. These Electromyographic signals are utilized to run variousmotors which enables the user (patient) to grip and move is limbs in a much moreeffective manner.The myoelectric arms have become extremely popular after the wars which haveleft several efficient soldiers without their arms.
