Why is providing shoulder assistance meaningful and unique?

Shoulders are involved with just about every body movement. Whether it’s getting out of bed, raising a fork or spoon to the mouth or reaching to get a glass from the cabinet, they are extremely consequential to individuals’ abilities to engage in their environments. Notably, the shoulder is responsible for maintaining the widest range of motion of any joint in the human body.

Shoulder function helps regulate arm mobility and arm stability. The glenohumeral joint and the segments of the shoulder girdle facilitate the former. Shoulder muscles, in combination with the glenohumeral capsule, labrum and ligaments, are responsible for the latter.

The Abilitech™ Assist is the only body-worn device that provides a hybrid assist at the shoulder and elbow.
