Patients missing an arm or hand have more prosthetic options than ever before.
Advances in technology and lightweight contoured sockets have brought dramatic improvement to upper extremity prosthetics.
Upper extremity care involves anything regarding the upper extremity including hand and fingers. Our upper extremity specialists are dedicated to helping you discover the prosthetic solution that best meet your needs and functional ability.
UPPER EXTREMITY SOCKETS
The socket is the critical first component in all our upper extremity prosthetic designs. Each socket is custom contoured to fit the bone, muscle, vascular and neurological areas of the residual limb. The result is a socket that has total contact with all the surfaces of the residual limb. That means greater comfort, increased muscle function, better suspension and superior range of motion.
Electrically powered or myoelectric prostheses offer a radically different approach to many conventional designs. With over a dozen different grip patterns and hand positions, a myoelectric prosthetic hand is designed to handle almost anything that you need to do in an average day: from eating meals and carrying bags, to opening doors, switching on lights, and typing. Individual motors in each finger allow you to move the hand and grip in a natural, coordinated way. Proportional speed control gives you precision control over delicate tasks.
