Bhubaneswar’s Student Develops Prosthetic Arm With Self-Made 3D Printer

Mishra has explained that he had a prior knowledge about coding and python that he has put to use to create this hand model.

For Kiran Behera, a 10 year old who was physically challenged since birth, the idea of self reliance was a foreign concept. But an opportunity arrived that change her life forever.

A class 11th student from DAV school, Shashwat Mishra has developed a low cost prosthetic arm with the help of a high-tech 3D printer.

According to Shashwat, he invested Rs 50,000 – Rs 60,000 for assembling a 3D printer machine. The amount was just the tip of the iceberg. For designing this prosthetic arm, Shaswat worked hard to understand the biomechanical features of a human hand.  

He further explained that he had a prior knowledge about coding and python that he has put to use to create this hand model.

The 16 year old who hails from Bhubaneshwar claims that the 200 gram prosthetic arm is light weight which will help Kiran to conduct day to day activities easily.

Shaswat was felicitated by IIIT, Institute of Physics and many other organisations for his Drone models, 3d printing technology and many more new inventions.
