We ran a 1 week programme of MyoPro patient trials from 16th to 20th September 2019. These sessions lasted up to 1.5 hours and established whether a MyoPro is suitable treatment option for each individual. .
We were delighted that the clinical team from America joined us to add the weight of their experience to the event.

What is the MyoPro?
The MyoPro is an EMG (ElectroMyography) triggered upper limb robotic orthosis, which has
been designed to help increase range of movement, grip and functional use of an upper limb
affected by damage to the nervous system.
It accomplishes this by detecting the user’s own signals to the muscles in the arm, even when
no movement is possible. The device magnifies these signals and uses them to drive the
motors in the device to move the elbow and hand. This myoelectric control strategy is not
electrical stimulation and has been used for decades in the prosthetics industry.
