The MyoPro is a Myoelectric Arm Orthosis designed to support a weak or deformed arm. The MyoPro can enable individuals to self-initiate and control movements of a partially paralyzed or weakened arm using their own muscle signals. When the user tries to bend their arm, sensors in the brace detect the weak muscle signal, which activates the motor to move the arm in the desired direction. The user is completely controlling their own arm; the brace amplifies their weak muscle signal to help bend and move their arm. With the orthosis, a paralyzed individual, such as one who has suffered a brachial plexus injury, stroke or other neuromuscular disorder can perform activities of daily living including feeding, reaching and lifting.
Myomo's mission is to enable individuals to overcome their paralysis by providing innovative, myoelectric orthotics and support services. We are committed to working with healthcare professionals to deliver high quality outcomes and patient satisfaction through research collaborations and continuing education programs. The Company empowers persons with a neuromuscular disability to perform functional activities at home, at work, and in the community, resulting in an improved quality of life and lower healthcare costs.
