Electric Limb Prostheses



  • Myoelectric:

         myoelectric-controlled prosthesis is an externally powered artificial limb that you control with the                           electrical  signals generated naturally by your own muscles. Hand, wrist and elbow myoelectric components             are available.

  • Bionic :

is the technique of replacing a limb or body part by an artificial limb or part that is electronically or                                mechanically powered. A prosthetic is an artificial device used to replace a missing body part, such as a limb

  • Hybrid :

Often uses a body- powered elbow and a myoelectrically controlled TD (hook or hand). If desired by the wearer,          an electric wrist rotator can also be included. Another type of hybrid prosthesis combines an electrically                    powered elbow with a body-powered hook or hand.
