Choose a suitable Prosthetic Hand Based on Your Amputation Level

Your amputation level is an essential factor impacting your choice of the right prosthetic. It affects the possibility of enhancing mobility and improving the quality of life for amputees later. Let's explore the most suitable options for each level:

1.1 Partial Hand Amputation

If you've lost some fingers, finger prostheses and hand prostheses can restore your grasping and gripping abilities.

1.2 Below-Elbow Amputation

Amputations below the elbow require prosthetic solutions that compensate for the loss of the forearm and hand. Myoelectric prostheses use muscle signals to control the movements of the prosthetic hand, offering precise control. Body-powered prostheses, on the other hand, rely on cables and harness systems, operated by body movements, and are known for their durability and simplicity.

1.3 Above-Elbow Amputation

Amputations above the elbow present unique challenges. Myoelectric prostheses utilize advanced technology to mimic natural arm movements, while hybrid prostheses combine body-powered and myoelectric technologies, providing versatility for above-elbow amputees.

The compatibility of Vulcan Multi Grip Myoelectric Hand

The Vulcan Multi Grip Myoelectric Hand is a renovative prosthetic hand solution that offers advanced functionality and affordability.

The Vulcan Hand's myoelectric control system, intuitive movements, and 6 grip patterns make it suitable for a wide range of daily activities and tasks at work. We also design specialized modules to support the unique and personalized desires of our users, such as the Push Up module or the Carrying module. Additional considerations are required for above-elbow amputations, considering the length and mobility of the residual limb. Overall, we always have different solutions (if needed) to match our users’ specific needs.
