Arm Prosthetics

New technologies in arm/hand prostheses allow greater functional use, user comfort and natural looking appearances than in the past. Batteries, microcomputers, circuitry, lightweight materials and other advances have improved the life of people who have arm/hand amputations. Older technology relied on “hook” and other limited terminals. Today arm prosthetics include grippers/holders of tools and implements including carpentry and mechanic tools and aids for daily living such as eating utensils, cutlery and outdoor recreation devices. Durable, natural looking hand covers provide an attractive appearance, as well as, improved functionality.
