Impaired Welder created Bionic Arm out of Junk Metals so that he can continue to work

Never let your disability define you. Who you are, who you wanna be, and who you will become in the future all depend on how you live and what you do with your life today.

This man in Indonesia proved that indeed, no kind of impairment could hinder a person who is motivated to succeed.

Meet Wayan Sumardana, an Indonesian welder who suffered from a stroke about 6 months ago.

The stroke caused Sumardana’s left hand to be paralyzed, which would have hindered him from doing his job.

But, Wayan Sumardana did not let this challenge stop him from doing what he does best. He started to make a bionic arm that would allow him to move his arm and continue to work.

He created his very own homemade bionic arm in his workshop in the village of Nyuh Tebel in the Karangasem regency in Bali.

The bionic arm may seem unskillfully built but, Wayan says that it still does the work.

“There are electrodes attached to me scalp, whose functions are to take small signals from the head. These signals would not be detected without this device. The signal is brought forward to an enlarged signal and then taken to the micro-control in my back and transferred to the front,” said Wayan Sumardana in an attempt to explain how his invention works.

His invention has enabled him to still use his arms and do his job as efficiently as he did before and still make a living to sustain his family.
