The first powered orthotic device with shoulder assist.


The first powered orthotic device with shoulder assist.

The Abilitech® Assist — an arm support device developed to help those with arm weakness or injury complete essential activities of daily living.

The wearable mechanical arm brace allows many people to use their own strength to move their arms.

Patients intuitively control the motion of their arms.

“Patients intuitively control the motion of their arms.”

Springs at the shoulder and elbow help arms feel weightless and support existing strength for smooth, natural movement. A connected battery pack helps users adjust to different weighted objects like a spoon, cell phone or water bottle.



Patients instinctually control motion of their arms.

For those with neuromuscular weakness in their arms.

A Manual Muscle Test (MMT) Score of 2 or higher in the shoulder and elbow is needed to support many key functions.

The Abilitech Assist assistive device may be covered by your insurance.

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

Damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal.

Brachial Plexus Injury (BPI)

Injury to the brachial plexus, the network of nerves that conducts signals from the spinal cord to the shoulder, arm and hand.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

Rare genetic disease that primarily affects males, and in rare cases, can also affect females. Causes the muscles in the body to become weak and damaged over time, and is eventually fatal. The genetic change that causes Duchenne happens before birth and can be inherited, or new mutations in the gene can occur spontaneously.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA)

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement.

Stroke (CVA)

A stroke, sometimes referred to as a brain attack, occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked by a clot or tear in a blood vessel.
