Abstract
A myoelectric prosthetic arm can replace the missing arm that has been lost due to accident or diseases. This physical impairment limits the motor abilities of human arm. Our project aims to develop a cost effective arm using surface EMG electrodes. The muscle signals are collected using a sensor, processed and given to a microcontroller to rotate the servo motors accordingly. The magnitude of voltage signal decides the servo motor to be operated.
