Returning Veterans to Arm Mobility and Independence

Veterans are told they have to live with their paralyzed or weakened arm. Our MISSION is to change that!

Veterans have given so much to this country.  After serving many veterans are left with injuries that affect their quality of life.  Until now, a paralyzed or weakened arm was treated with therapy and “coping strategies.”  But now, MyoPro is restoring arm mobility to military veterans and restoring much of their independence and pride.

Military veteran candidates who qualify may be eligible for a device through the VA.

MyoPro® from Myomo® is a unique, powered upper limb orthosis designed to restore function to the weakened or paralyzed arms of patients suffering from CVA stroke, brachial plexus injury, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, ALS or other neuromuscular disease or injury.  It is the only device that, sensing a patient’s own EMG signals through non-invasive sensors on the arm, can restore an individual’s ability to perform activities of daily living, including feeding themselves, carrying objects and doing household tasks.  Many are able to return to work, live independently and reduce their cost of care.

"Before MyoPro, my arm was just there. Now I can get it to do the things I want it to do."

Dave is a Veteran of the Maryland Army National Guard. He suffered a stroke and was fitted with MyoPro by the Baltimore VA Medical Center.

Now with two functioning hands, Dave has been able to return to his hobby of woodworking. “If anybody says you can’t get something back that you lost years ago, that’s not a true statement. You can get it back, but you have to work at it,” he said.

"I can definitely say the MyoPro has given me my independence back.”

Jay Jay is a USMC Vietnam Purple Heart Veteran. He suffered a stroke, and was fitted with MyoPro by the Cleveland VA.

 

He uses his MyoPro Motion G every day to perform task including cooking, balancing while walking and lifting objects.*

In 2017, Military Medicine magazine published a case report on MyoPro.  They concluded that while wearing MyoPro “Active left upper extremity range of motion and strength increased significantly… an improved ability to incorporate his affected extremity into a wide variety of bilateral, gross motor activities of daily living such as carrying a laundry basket, lifting heavy objects (e.g. a chair), using a tape measure, meal preparation, and opening doors.”

"A MyoPro device can help many veterans regain functional movement of a paralyzed arm. We are committed helping veterans get this device in support of a move to independence."
