    Abstract :

    The aim of this work is to design prosthetic robotic arm for disabled using cost effective proposal to performdifferent object picking tasks. The robotic arm consists of a wrist and five-finger gripper. It can perform differentgripping actions, such as spherical, cylindrical and tip-holding gripping actions using a five-finger gripper; each fingerhas three movable links. The actuator used for the robotic arm is a servo motor, and the five-finger gripper consists offive cables placed like tendons in the human arm. We have created two proposals for prosthetic arm & FEA used forvalidation. CAD modeling of prosthetic robotic arm has done using Catia V5 R19. FEA analysis using ANSYS 15.0 hasbeen carried out to fond optimum shape of finger geometry
