Myoelectric prostheses

The history of prosthetics is almost as old as medical science itself. The first attempt to replace a missing body part was made in ancient Egypt. Since then, the field has continued to evolve in its functionality and natural, unobtrusive design. Modern myoelectric prostheses are controlled by a combination of muscle contractions and electronics and offer users a high degree of functionality and independence.

Are you interested in the field of prosthetics? Would you like to learn more about the interaction of electronics and muscle contractions using a practical example? Are you familiar with innovative solutions from national and international companies? Take a moment to read about myoelectric prosthetics in our current episode of arcoro CONNECT.
