Custom Myoelectric Orthosis for Veterans

The MyoPro® is a custom myoelectric 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 flex or extend his or her arm, sensors in the orthosis detect the
weak muscle signal, which activates the motor to move the arm in the
desired direction. The user is completely controlling his or her own arm.
The orthoisis amplifies the weak muscle signal to help move the arm.
With the orthosis, a veteran with a paralyzed arm, due to issues such as
a neuromuscular disorder, can perform activities of daily living including
feeding, reaching, and lifting.
