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.
The Classic is fully mechanical and uses the Hybrid’s forearm counterbalance to assist patients with positioning of the elbow. This lightweight, economical option does not contain any circuitry or electronics. It features a manual locking mechanism to hold the elbow in place.
Sometimes, the answer is simple. The Basic is fully body-powered and features spring assist to enhance ease of movement. Without any electronics or battery, the Basic has a smooth, clean line shell. It also uses a manual locking mechanism to hold the elbow in place. This is the most lightweight and durable option of the Espire Elbow series.
