The demand for prosthetics in the market with autonomous and automatic controlling of finger movements using embedded systems is exponential. However this autonomy accompanies heavy usage of components for perfection resulting in costs becoming uncompromised for such a device. Practically tested results show that these need-based people have active upper arm functioning, which serves as an advantage for using the electromyography (EMG) and sensory feedback to develop the prosthetic lower arm. EMG for a subject is always challenging in case of precise placement of electrodes at various muscle points to measure the muscle activity through a surgery. Therefore the below-proposed model is developed carefully to avoid any further operating procedures along with added features such as sensory feedback for temperature and force-touch sensors including a withdrawl-mechanism within the prosthetic arm
