NEW PROSTHETIC CONTROLLER EXPANDS CAPABILITIES
Repository Usage Stats
The new VariGrip(tm) III Multi-Device Controller from LTI has expanded the capabilities of microprocessor-based prosthetic controllers. Traditionally, one or two prosthetic devices were controlled by two myoelectric input signals. This worked well for some people, but others could not master it and therefore they needed a different control strategy. The VariGrip solves this problem by offering a variety of pre-programmed control strategies. It allows prosthetists to set up systems to control up to four devices for greater versatility. Rather than restricting the user to myoelectrodes, the VariGrip III accepts inputs from myoelectrodes, Touch Pads, servo transducers or switches to fully utilize the user’s capabilities. The controller is compatible with all manufacturer’s single-motor terminal devices which further expands the options available to the prosthetist.
