Which innovations are changing upper-arm orthotics?

Today’s upper-limb orthotic innovations increasingly consist of lightweight materials, advanced sensors and/or microprocessors, high-density batteries, and powerful actuation systems. Some even contain onboard memory to capture and communicate usage and biometric data.

Abilitech Medical leverages many of these advances in material science and has made its Abilitech Assist serve a body part otherwise unsupported by powered upper limb orthotics — the shoulder. The Abilitech™ Assist supports both the shoulder and the elbow, allowing certain individuals with minimal strength to have independent movement.
