Two Pakistani engineers, Mohammad Awais, and Anas Nazir have developed a prosthetic arm for disabled people that can be controlled by the brain. The two started working on the project during their university days.
“Project was aimed at making a name for ourselves in the world of bio-robotics. Now we are working on bionic-based lower limbs and exoskeletons”, Awais said.
As per reports, the project has helped more than 30 physically challenged persons. The fingers and hand movements in response to the signals transmitted by the brain and its cost are 312,700 rupees.
Explaining the mechanics of the arm, Niaz said sensors are placed at those points where the brain sends signals to fingers directing them to move.
