What is an Upper Extremity Prosthetic?

Upper extremity prosthetics offer individuals who have lost a hand, arm, or other upper limb a renewed sense of independence and functionality. These innovative devices are designed to mimic the intricate movements of the human arm, often incorporating myoelectric sensors, advanced materials, and intuitive control systems. Whether it’s enabling someone to grasp a cup of coffee or regain the ability to perform complex tasks like typing or playing musical instruments, upper extremity prosthetics have revolutionized the lives of amputees by restoring not only physical capabilities but also a profound sense of empowerment and self-confidence.
