If you have an upper-limb difference, one of the biggest challenges you can face is making sense of all the options you have when it comes to robotic arms for amputees. Not only do you need to consider which type of bionic arms for amputees make the most sense for your needs, but also what to expect in terms of their learning curve and available features. This is why we provide you with many resources here on this page to help you understand all the solutions we have to offer.
We offer the most advanced pattern recognition controls used for robotic limbs for amputees. Our Complete Control technology makes the use of mechanical hands for amputees more intuitive and natural-feeling, and overall easier to use. The information found on this page can help you understand how our solutions work and what they can do for you.
How long will it take me to master using my prosthesis?
Mechanical arms for amputees and those with limb differences can take a bit of practice before you can use them without thinking too much about them. Our Complete Control modules and apps help streamline the process and make it as effortless as possible, but you should still expect a learning curve before it feels natural.
Is there anything I should do to prepare for my new prosthesis?
Depending on how long ago your amputation was, you may need to work at desensitizing your residual limb. This is helpful for ensuring that robotic hands for amputees will be comfortable. Keeping the muscles in your arms strong and flexible is another helpful tip, and your doctor may recommend an exercise regimen, so you don’t become fatigued while using your new prosthesis.
What can I expect in terms of maintenance?
You most likely will need to continue seeing your prosthetist on a regular basis. This is to ensure that your prosthesis continues to fit properly and remains in good working order.
