Abstract:
    We are working on the development of myoelectric prosthetic hand, which can be implanted on an amputee. It will be able to do certain motion in assisting amputees in their daily life tasks.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There is no such manufacturing and implanting prosthetic hands on amputees in Pakistan. In U.S alone there are more than 1 million amputees of upper limb. We can make an estimate about Pakistan from it. This project is not just a hope but a dream for such people.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Anyone with a upper limb amputee dreams of it. Many youngster who had lost their hands, it will be new hope for their lives. It will benefit anyone with an amputee to do daily tasks; drinking water etc. It can benefit hundred of thousands of people; common man, armed forces etc.
How will the solution works
    after manufacturing (in process), we will implant it on an amputee to test it. Meanwhile as our design is inspired from international companies, we will try to find our own novelty about it and tried to get in patented. After it we will launch it as a startup. We can find potential partners with armed forces, health ministry and investors. IN SHAA ALLAAH
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Work has been done in Pakistan on it but not have been implanted as to our knowledge. Internationally, it is being commercialized but its cost is high. If we are able to get a version of our own in our people affordability, it will effect life of hundred on thousands.`\
