Individual Silicon Interface for Myoelectric upper limbs
Repository Usage Stats
Silicon as an interface is a very good material, one that gives us the ability to solve problems not easily solved before. The long Trans-radial has never been easy to fit. When we first started to manufacture bespoke Silicon interfaces we used silicon gel that was painted onto the cast until we achieved the thickness required. This system has worked well but it was not able to cope with a myoelectric arm easily. We needed to develop a system that allowed the patient to don and doff the silicon interface when fitted with electrodes and cables and did not cause the patient to sweat.
