Making sure the prosthetic components are set up for ideal Coapt control
There are quite a few options for prosthesis users when it comes to terminal devices, wrists, and elbows; not to mention all of the possible different configurations of each. This section will assist with the Coapt setup with your specific configuration.
The Coapt system was designed to be compatible with as many prosthetic components as possible. To do that it stores different communication languages, setups, and profiles in its memory. The system has been engineered to be smart, but it is still VERY IMPORTANT for you to ensure two things for ideal operation:
- PROPER DEVICE SETTINGS: Make sure the native/onboard settings of all of the prosthetic devices you are setting up for Coapt control are set and saved to exact parameters recommended by Coapt. For this one time task, you may have to use the setup software and/or tools from the manufacturer of each device. An important tip: Plan for enough time to accomplish this.
- PROPER DEVICE CONNECTIONS: Connectors coming from the Coapt system (white jacketed Device Connection Cable) need to be properly connected to your prosthetic device(s). To assist, all Coapt terminal connections are labeled and match instructions on illustrative connection diagrams of the available cable type (available online or in the software application). Pro tip: There is a two-character code on the label of your Coapt Device Connection Cable. Use that code to find and follow the specific settings and connection diagrams.
