Abstract:

Disasters have impact on disability, by affecting people with existing disabilities and by creating new generations with disabilities. Intervention of Rehabilitation is of critical importance in disaster management. This paper focuses on post disaster rehabilitation of human life. The lost limbs of victims of disasters are restored with the help of prosthetic limbs. we have proposed a system that could work similar to our biological limb which could provide high degree of freedom and that could feel the sense of touch with sensors inbuilt. In order to strengthen and decrease the weight of Prosthesis we have proposed a Carbon fiber Sandwich (tegris) biomaterial.


Keywords: DC motor, Degree Of Freedom (DOF), Myoelectric arm, Pylon, Rehabilitation, Servo motor.
