This completely powered elbow joint offers all the features and functions for the ultimate user experience. It allows for simultaneous or sequential control when paired with other terminal devices on the market. To ensure anatomical correctness in movement, the Pro comes equipped with automatic free swing. This model also supports up to eight control inputs including electrodes, touchpads, and switches.
The Hybrid has the same electronics and battery as the Pro—without the powered elbow joint. This model uses a forearm counterbalance to assist patients with positioning of the elbow. The electrical lock can be controlled by myo signals or other traditional inputs. The Hybrid conveniently uses the same inputs as the Pro to control terminal devices.
This fully mechanical elbow is the most lightweight, economical option of the Espire series. It does not contain any circuitry or electronics. Similar to the Hybrid, the Classic uses the forearm counterbalance to assist patients with positioning of the elbow. It also uses a manual locking mechanism to hold the elbow in place.
