The Select™ Electric Hand offers several advantages over similar products. The hand is responsive – opening or closing in just 0.9 seconds. It is light – weighing as little as 7.5 oz (214 grams). And it is versatile – its on-board microprocessor provides five clinician-selectable control strategies to choose from. It can also accept input signals from any of the following: LTI Touch Pads, LTI myoelectrodes, RSLSteeper myoelectrodes, Otto Bock myoelectrodes, single-action pull-switches or touch-activated switches.
The Select Electric Hand has two other features that set it apart: soft finger palps and a break-away thumb. The palps are resilient fingertip pads that conform to the shape of an object, allowing the hand to grasp small or irregular objects without exerting excessive force. And the break-away thumb lets users release the grip in an emergency.
The Select Electric Hand is offered in three adult sizes, measured as width across the knuckles: 2¾”, 3” & 3¼” (corresponding circumference measurements are: 7¼”, 7¾” & 8¼” respectively). Elegance cosmetic gloves are available in 19 colors to match the user’s skin tone and in both PVC and silicone.
The MultiControl feature provides five standard control strategies: Within each of the five control modes, there are several ways to configure a hand system, select the control option then choose the inputs that will provide the desirable control signals.
- Single-site voluntary opening – threshold control
- Single-site, pulse to open, sustained signal to close, threshold closing speed
- Single-site, pulse to open, sustained signal to close, proportional closing speed
- Two-site, threshold control
- Two-site, proportional control
Proportional control options let the user take full advantage of the MultiControl Hand's features using either myoelectrodes or Touch Pad™ inputs.
Cosmetic gloves are available in PVC and silicone in a wide range of colors to match the user's skin tone. The Elegance™ silicone glove is preferred because of its stain-resistance and exceptional elasticity. With 15% stretch, this glove will not affect the motion of the hand and will therefore help minimize power consumption.
