Designed for the everyday, the Steeper Myoelectric System includes the new Myo Kinisi hand which provides an easy to control, high-speed grasp alongside a strong grip force to carry out activities of daily living with ease, with the added benefit of an Auto-Grip function allowing users a more secure grip on difficult to hold objects. The hand is complemented by advanced myoelectrodes for increased accuracy and gain control, and is powered by the all new high-capacity S-Charge System which features a 3500mAh internal battery, making it one of the most powerful available. The prosthesis is finished by the ‘Elegance Plus’ cosmetic glove, designed specifically to complement the Myo Kinisi.

Paul Steeper, CEO of Steeper Group and SteeperUSA commented “a new myoelectric system is something our customers have desired for some time. We’ve used our innovative knowledge of upper limb prostheses to deliver an evolution to a myoelectric system; using the latest advancements in product design, super capacitor technology and modern materials such as titanium for increased strength.”

Patients will enjoy the enhanced cosmesis given by the Elegance Plus silicone glove which has been designed to work in harmony with the Myo Kinisi. An internal reinforced mesh layer increases durability for even high activity users, and improved realism to the skin appearance is achieved with enhancement on the knuckles, joints and nail finish; the Elegance Plus Glove is available in 19 TrueFinishTM shades.

Clinicians can program the Myo Kinisi to meet exacting patient preferences with a choice of five modes and fine adjustments to control parameters can be made via the Steeper Configuration Device, a simple three button operation programming hub with an easy-to-read screen.

Paul Steeper concluded “the Steeper Myoelectric System will offer both clinicians and users a greater choice of durable, reliable and easy to use devices. The Myo Kinisi offers superb grip strength via trusted technology and the Elegance Plus Glove is sure appeal to a wide range of users with its enhanced finish and skin-like texture; couple that with our very latest myoelectrodes and increased capacity S-Charge battery system and users will instantly benefit from these innovations. Patient trials have proved successful with users commenting on the increased control the Myo Kinisi offers whilst using a control strategy they are already familiar with; meaning the hand is easily and readily usable.”
