Regain Use of Arm
Technology Now Widely
Available Means Moderately to Severely Weakened Arms and Hands May Function
Experiencing a stroke can be devastating.
Many are left with an arm so weak it seems useless. The biggest loss can
be your independence.
But for many,
regaining use of your arm and hand and your independence is possible.
Myomo, a medical robotics company, has developed the MyoPro—a lightweight,
non-invasive powered brace (orthosis). It is the only orthosis that, sensing a
patient’s own neurological signals through sensors on the surface of the skin,
can restore their ability to use their arms and hands so that they can return
to work, live independently and reduce their cost of care.
Hundreds of patients
have used it successfully. It is recommended by clinicians at leading
rehabilitation facilities and 20 VA hospitals. (MyoPro is not for
everyone and your results may vary.)
