What Types Of Prosthetic Arms Does NY Rehab offer?
NY Rehab offers both passive prosthetic arms and bionic prosthetic arms.
Passive prosthetic arms have parts that are non-articulating and do not allow for movement. A passive prosthetic arm can:
Have basic functionality that allows for pushing and pulling actions, as well as supporting and stabilizing motions
Be designed with special joints so the arm can hold and carry objects
Be fabricated to match skin tone
Bionic prosthetic arms or myoelectric prosthetic arms have moving parts that work via sensor and electrodes. A bionic arm can:
Detect the speed and strength of muscle movements and contractions in the residual limb or the shoulder, back and chest areas (if the amputee has lost an entire arm)
Operate the various component of the prosthetic arm in a way that mimics natural movement
