Man is a one-of-a-kind creation that only God could have made. They are an invaluable asset to the human body, with each component serving a purpose that is distinct from the others. Because of the significant impact that they have on a person's day-to-day and professional activities, a person's fingers, lower arm, and forearm are the body parts that should be preserved following an amputation the most. The primary goal of this bionic arm is to regain fundamental control of the hand at a price that will enable amputees with limited financial resources to purchase a bionic arm. This technology is utilized in the production of many of the artificial arms  that are currently available for purchase around the world; however, these arms come at a very high cost. This study demonstrates the design, manufacturing, and functioning of a 3-D printed prosthetic hand that employs an electromyography (EMG) sensor in order to imitate the fundamental motions that are carried out by human hands (holding an object, lifting an object, shutting and opening fingers).
