Steeper Myoelectric Hands are electrically operated devices designed to meet the needs of most upper limb amputees. A powerful mechanism is provided, giving a grip force output suitable for most routine daily tasks.
Steeper offer a comprehensive range of electric products, from hands and wrists through to myoelectric shoulder units and powered elbows to accommodate all levels of amputation.
These products are supported by control systems and power supplies, which provide the user with the optimum method of operation. All system components are fitted with shape-coded plugs and sockets. These features eliminate the need for specialist wiring skills in the clinical facility.
The Boston Digital Arm System is a powered elbow with a microprocessor based control system that utilises state of the art components. This digital system provides a “platform” for controlling various upper limb prosthetic devices such as hands, grippers, powered split hooks, wrist rotators and even powered shoulder joint actuators. It can control up to five devices and is compatible with virtually all manufacturers’ prosthetic components.
State-of-the-art electronics offer outstanding capture and amplification from signals as low as 10μV. Proportional output and in-built gain adjustment permits fine control of the terminal device.
