For information on how the Myomo (my own motion) orthotic device could help BPI patients please click here: Myomo-Myoelectric Orthotics for BPI
MyoPro can be used by adults with moderate to severe upper extremity impairments due to a Brachial Plexus Injury. The cause of the original injury does not matter, however the MyoPro is best suited for individuals who have permanent loss of movement and function in their arm.
The MyoPro is a functional orthotic and so will enable the individual to bend and straighten their arm and complete a variety of functional tasks in the home and community that they couldn't otherwise do without this custom-made device.
Some of these activities include ADLs, light household chores and meal preparation, using the affected arm in bilateral tasks such as lifting and carrying objects, pushing to stand up and work or leisure activities.
The third full week of October is slated as Brachial Plexus Awareness Week. This year we will be celebrating Awareness October 19th-25th, 2014.
