Steeper Group, which provides a variety of prosthetic and orthotic devices, has actually announced the integration of the ingenious Espire ™ Elbow range to its upper limb prosthetics portfolio.

Including pioneering technology, design, and engineering, the easy-to-use Espire Elbow range uses 5 designs for users worldwide, which can be configured to fulfill private needs.

Each design is site-specific and comes in a variety of colors and two size options. From lightweight, mechanical models to myoelectric, powered joints, each elbow intends to be reputable with a sleek style, according to Steeper Group.

Steeper Group states the transmission of the Espire Pro makes it possible for a high lift and hold capacity, allowing users to hold 11kg and dynamically lift 4kg to carry out everyday tasks with ease. The Pro utilizes a custom 50W brushless DC motor, which offers the speed and torque needed to extend the elbow and bend.

In addition, the Pro and Hybrid models can be integrated with “innovative” pattern recognition innovation from Coapt and IBT, the business highlights.
