Featured Technology: Open Bionics Hero Arm
With patient-centered innovation at our core, we are dedicated to ensuring each person we serve has access to cutting-edge solutions that improve mobility while inspiring confidence in everyday life. This is why we partnered with Open Bionics to bring the first-ever medically-approved 3D-printed bionic arm to the United States.
The Hero Arm is a lightweight myoelectric prosthesis with multi-grip functionality and empowering aesthetics for adults and children as young as eight years old. Each Hero Arm is custom-built, based on the needs of each person in the UK using 3D printing and 3D scanning technologies.
The Hero Arm weighs less than 2.2lbs in its entirety. The hand comes in three sizes, and at 0.62lbs – 0.76lbs, is the lightest bionic hand available.
- Multiple Grips
Up to six easy-to-select grips, such as a fist, hook, pinch, and tripod, provide outstanding versatility and control.
- Intuitive Feedback
Haptic vibrations and beepers on the electrodes, as well as buttons and lights, offer intuitive notifications.
- Proportional Control
EMG muscle sensors detect muscle movements, giving proportional control.
- Dynamic Socket
An adjustable socket and a removable ventilated liner (both custom 3D-printed) give exceptional fit and comfort.
- Stylish Covers
You can choose from a range of swappable covers to match your style or mood.
