Wayan Sutawan: The Iron Man of Indonesia

“Wayan Sutawan” is known as the Iron Man of Indonesia after making certain robotic equipment that has the ability to read brain signals and at the same time allow him to fully control his left arm which is paralyzed. The story begun 6 months ago when he suffered from stroke and his left arm got paralyzed. Since he got a little knowledge about mechanical engineering when he was in high school, he spends several months to create the device using spare parts in his garage. He created “strap on mechanism” connected into a headband that claims to transmit commands and read brainwaves. As he used the device, the arm miraculously moves.
