MyoPro

Infinite Technologies  is the first facility in Virginia to be certified in The MyoPro™, which is a Myoelectric Arm Orthosis designed to 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 brace, a paralyzed individual, such as one who has suffered a stroke, or other neuromuscular disorder, can perform activities of daily living including feeding, reaching, and lifting.

  • Customized look for each patient
The MyoPro™ is a Myoelectric Limb Orthosis designed to provide an assistive function for joint motion enabling individuals to self-initiate and control movements of a partially paralyzed arm using their own muscle signals.
