MyoPro can be used by individuals with moderate upper extremity impairments due to neurological damage such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The MyoPro is a functional orthotic, enabling individuals to incorporate their affected arm or arms into meaningful functional tasks of daily living. Some of these activities include feeding, grooming and light household chores such as folding laundry and light meal preparation. Attachments such as forks, spoons and hooks are also available to help facilitate these tasks and others.
A key feature of MyoPro is that the level of assistance it provides to the user can be tailored to their abilities and current level of strength. This means that MyoPro can maximize function and independence over the long term, and can be a critical energy conservation tool and help to minimize fatigued.
