What is a MyoPro Orthosis?
The MyoPro is a myoelectric elbow/wrist/hand orthosis (powered brace) that supports an impaired hand and arm while also enabling it to move again. Individuals use their own muscle signals to control movements of a paretic or weakened arm. When the user tries to bend their arm or open and close their hand, precision sensors in the brace detect the weak muscle signals which activates motors to move the hand and arm in the desired directions. The user is completely controlling their own hand and arm; the brace amplifies their weak muscle signal to help move the limb.
MyoPro is the only product of its kind for people who suffer from debilitating neurological disorders such as brachial plexus injury, spinal or brain cord injury, CVA stroke, multiple sclerosis or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It is recommended by top hospitals and is delivered through a growing network of established Orthotics & Prosthetics (O&P) professionals, with whom Myomo is working to make MyoPro the standard of care.
