This research paper emphasizes on unbelievable functionality of prosthetic hand. Till now, we have studied about prosthetic limbs for the amputees or the war soldiers or the people who have met with an accident, undergone the surgery and got the prosthetic hand. But what about the functionality of prosthetic hand. Can it open and pack your luggage or has an auto-grasp feature that nothing gets tumbled from the prosthetic hand. Is it the sensor technology it is using and if yes, then how it is implemented by the electronic component microprocessor and Bluetooth capabilities using bionics based wearable technology, controlled from smartphone, are the main components of this research paper.
