MyoPro can be used by individuals with moderate upper extremity impairments due to neurological damage such as a brain injury. The MyoPro is a functional orthotic, enabling users to incorporate their affected arm into activities of daily living such as feeding, grooming and light household chores (e.g laundry, light meal preparation tasks, cleaning, turning a light switch on/off). Attachments such as forks, spoons or hooks are also available to facilitate success in these activities.
MyoPro can also be utilized in a range of other functional activities both in the home and in the community. For those who have had a brain injury, potential benefits may include being able to use both arms for tasks such as pushing a shopping cart or navigating through their environment safely while using an assistive device. By restoring movement and function to the affected arm, individuals can experience increased safety and an improved ability to stabilize themselves using the affected arm.
