There are different types of prosthetic arms depending on the requirements of the patient. Functional prosthetic arms are divided into body powered and electrically powered systems. A body powered prosthesis uses a harness and cable system where movements of the body are used to operate the prosthesis.

Electrically powered prostheses generally use myo-electric signals as switches to operate the prosthesis. Some arm amputees do not want a functional prosthesis and prefer to wear a passive cosmetic prosthesis to restore their appearance. These passive prostheses are lighter than functional prostheses.

At our practice we strive to keep abreast of the latest technology in prosthetics.  We attend training courses both locally and overseas on a regular basis and within the practice we are certified to supply and fit the following systems.
