Myoelectric Prosthesis

Our myoelectric prosthetics provide an incredible level of functionality to amputation patients.


Technology is advancing all the time, especially in the field of medicine. One area in which there have been significant strides in recent years is prosthetic technology. Here at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics, we are committed to offering the latest in assistive technology to all of our patients, and we encourage you to turn to our team to learn more about your options. In particular, we can offer myoelectric prosthetics that can restore an unprecedented level of limb function.


Myoelectric prosthetics use sensors to detect bioelectric signals from the nerves in residual limbs, then respond to those signals in a manner that mirrors how a biological limb would. While early models of these types of prosthetics were somewhat limited in function and sensitivity, the subsequent advances in this technology allow manufacturers to create hand prosthetics with five fully functional fingers. As you can see, myoelectric prosthetics are a fantastic choice to regain functionality that has been lost due to an amputation. If you have further questions about these prosthetics work or anything else, our team at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics is happy to go over anything you wish to know. Our team wants to help you achieve the best possible quality of life, and myoelectric prosthetics are a great way to do that.


We at Tierney Orthotics and Prosthetics are proud to serve the Winston-Salem, North Carolina community, and we want to help you get the best in assistive technology. If you are interested in our myoelectric prosthetics, we encourage you to give us a call today.
