How the MyoPro Arm Brace Facilitates Activities of Daily Living

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.

The MyoPro® Motion W™ can now provide 4 degree of freedom movement. This is accomplished using a myoelectric driven motorized elbow joint along with a manually set multi-articulating wrist. The multi-articulating wrist extends the functional benefits of the MyoPro orthosis and can provide the following clinical benefits:
  • Flexion / extension, radial / ulnar deviation
  • Rotation - pronation / supination
  • Allows the user to have multi-axial movement at the wrist
  • Adjustable ratcheting and tension for each degree of freedom





If you have limited mobility or muscle weakness in the arm due to a neurological disorder, you may be a candidate for the MyoPro® arm brace. This portable, light-weight functional arm brace is applicable to a range of individuals with muscle weakness and neuro-muscular damage from conditions ranging from Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury and Cerebral Palsy to Spinal Cord Injury.
