Our desire is always for you to have the prosthetic you need, with a comfortable fit, to live your best life.
Body powered prosthetics are an excellent option for many who need upper body prosthetics. Movements in the upper arm, shoulder, and chest are captured by a cable and harness system and are used to control movements in the prosthetic arm and hand.
As you become more aware of the feeling of the varying tension on the cable, you may notice an increased sense of the positioning of the limb. The harness helps to hold it in place. There are many benefits to this type of prosthesis.
- More Robust Than Myoelectric
- No External Energy Source Required
- Strong & Durable
- Light Weight
- Operation & Use Easy To Learn
- More Affordable
A hybrid prosthetic limb is a combination of the body-powered and the electrically powered prosthesis. They can contain a mixture of sensors that detect muscle movements, as well as cables and harnesses like the body-powered options.
This type of device is often used when you have a higher level of limb loss and require more than one moveable component and will allow you to move the hand and elbow simultaneously. This option is ideal for some patients.
- Higher Level Limb Loss
- Increased Function
- Simultaneous Hand & Elbow Movement
- Customizable For Specific Activities
- A More Natural Appearance
