Each MyoPro brace is custom fitted to each patient for optimum performance. The MyoPro is available only at an O&P practice certified to provide and fit the MyoPro.
During the fitting process, a certified orthotist or prosthetist will qualify an individual for a MyoPro through a physical assessment. Should the individual qualify, the O&P center will determine whether the device is covered by the individual's health insurance. If coverage is in effect and the individual is a good candidate for MyoPro, the O&P center will initiate the fitting process:
First a plaster molding of the patient's arm will be taken. This mold is sent off to a central fabrication facility for custom brace construction.
The individual being fitted will be presented with a variety of brace colors and patterns.
Fabrication typically takes 2-4 weeks. Once the brace is received by the O&P practice, the patient will be brought back for a fitting. During this fitting, the device will be calibrated to the user's individual muscle signal profile and minor adjustments to the brace can be made to optimize comfort.
The user will be provided with initial training and a set of take home tasks to practice with the brace donned. Research studies have shown that orthotic and prosthetic users do better when they receive additional training on how to best use their accommodation device. Follow up training may take place at a MyoPro certified therapy or rehabilitation center or at the O&P practice.
