Wearable technology is generally considered as a means of enhancing a person's baseline abilities, but the MyoPro myoelectric arm instead focuses on restoring functionality to those with neuromuscular disease or injury. Billed as the only lightweight wearable on the market focused on restoring movement, the MyoPro myoelectric arm attaches noninvasively and works by reading faint nerve signals on the surface of the skin.

This innovative piece of technology is already being used by more than 700 adults in the US and Canada, as well as select European countries. This is an already impressive statistic, but MyoPro hopes that its myoelectric arm will reach more people as it proves to be a powerful tool for restoring movement to disabled individuals.
