TRANSCARPAL HAND DMC PLUS (MODEL 8E44)
The Transcarpal Hand DMC (Dynamic Mode Control) Plus, model 8E44, is a myoelectric prosthetic hand designed for use by individuals with upper extremity disabilities. Grip speed is variable from 15 to 130 millimeters per second. The high maximum grip speed and the balance of grip force and speed allow the user to experience more physiological gripping. The control contains both the original DMC control and the DMC plus mode, which includes a virtual hand switch. After gripping once with maximum grip force, a slightly higher signal is required to open the hand. This improves gripping security and facilitates the holding of such things as eating utensils.
