MyoPro can be used by individuals with moderate upper extremity impairments due to neurological damage such as a spinal cord injury (SCI). The MyoPro is a functional orthotic, enabling individuals to incorporate their affected arm or arms into meaningful functional tasks. At a wheelchair level, MyoPro users can increase independence and function with activities of daily living such as feeding and grooming tasks. Attachments are also available to facilitate success with these tasks.
MyoPro users can also work towards increased independence in accessing their environment. For example using a stylus to use a tablet, or driving a power wheelchair with a joystick instead of sip and puff controls. Other functional goals include increased ability to use the arms to reposition or adjust the body in a wheelchair, therefore improving comfort, seated posture and facilitating critical pressure reliefs.
