Each Hero Arm is unique, just like you. We take a 3D scan of your limb, use clever software and design to manufacture your Hero Arm using tough Nylon 12. The full prosthesis is robust, and the innovative socket is comfortable, adjustable and breathable, making it easy to take on and off while providing you with the best fit.
With the Hero Arm, enjoy technology at your fingertips. Special sensors within the Hero Arm detect muscle movements, meaning you can effortlessly control your bionic hand with intuitive life-like precision. Also, haptic vibrations, beepers, buttons and lights provide you with intuitive notifications to help you control bionic arm movements.
