Kinisi Myo Hand
The Myo Kinisi is a myoelectrically controlled terminal device engineered to provide optimal control, responding intuitively to the strength and speed of the user’s muscle contractions. This prosthetic hand is designed to be tailored by the prosthetist to the individual’s needs, with multiple wrist, size and hand mode options for the patient’s comfort and usability.
This device aims to assist Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), by providing an easy to control, high speed grasp, alongside a strong grip force. Optimally powered using high-capacity battery systems, it is recommended for use with an S-Charge System fabricated within the forearm.
A durable PVC hand shell encloses and protects the hand’s internal mechanism, accompanied by the Elegance Plus reinforced silicone glove, specifically designed for the Myo Kinisi.
