Wayan Sumardana, a welder by profession, lost his arm to a paralytic attack six months ago. Even after consulting many doctors, he could not be cured. He lost his job and, consequently, financial hardships increased. Devastated with his medical condition, he embarked upon the idea of creating a ‘bionic arm’.
