Industry 4.0 is the most trending technology that has been used nowadays in many fields especially in medical field and this appears to be especially true for orthopaedic trauma surgery. This fourth industrial revolution that consists of additive manufacturing uses three dimensional (3D) printing techniques to invent a three dimensional printed bionic hand that helps the transradial amputees to perform daily life activities and it is controlled by Arduino microcontroller. In order to make a functional bionc hand, the grasp of the hand needs to be adaptive. There are six form of grasps which are Tip, Lateral, Tripod, Spherical, Power, and Extension referring to the Southampton Hand Assessment Procedure (SHAP). However, the current bionic hands are only able to perform four out of six type of grasps which are Power, Tip, Lateral and Spherical as the Tripod grasp is not flexible enough. Therefore, this project aims to develop a 3D printed bionic hand with Tripod grasp functionality for transradial amputees to perform a daily life activities by using Arduino. The target audience for this bionic hand is a transradial amputee with the age of 18 or above because the size of the arm is already matured and it is standardized. The amputees also must have no cognitive disorder and healthy from any skin disorders. The type of test performed by the amputees is Activities of Daily Living (ADL) that consists picking up the pen and write using prosthetic hand. The methodology used in this study is Waterfall methodology as the phase in the development process begins only if the previous phase is complete.
