Abstract: Number of amputees are increasing every year due to may causes such as vascular disease (54%) including diabetes and peripheral arterial disease, trauma (45%), and cancer (less than 2%). The fields of brain controlled and Medical applications for 3D printing are expanding rapidly and are gradually revolutionizing the delivery of health care. Based on these two technologies, we set out to find the feasibility of a low-cost wearable 3D printed arm to address the problem of amputation. This paper presents mind-controlled 3D printed arm with embedded sensor feedback system. The aim of this project is to come up with a light-weighted wireless 3D arm which can be portable, wearable and controlled using EEG headset. The given criteria were set to be based on 3 factors: Weight, Cost and Battery Life. An open source 3D arm was printed and controlled using an EEG headset to test the arms flexibility. The results show that the printed arm weighs almost half of an average male arm (1.53KG). More over the Cost of the arm was considerably lower than a surgical, prosthetic or static procedure with the deviation reaching up to a massive 8000% in the favour of the robotic arm. The battery life is estimated to be about 0.5 to 1 day considering normal usage. Given that all three factors fall in a reasonable range, it could be concluded that the future of 3D printed arms for amputees is much bright, with more work to be done in the portability and mechanical design.
