  • Amazing at using his short arms (picks pieces of thread off of the floor and can screw bottle caps off and on)!

Here They Are: Jameson’s 1st Myo’s

Jameson now has his finished set of Myo’s!

I think I mentioned in my last post that we had to leave Advanced Arm Dynamics before the Myoelectric prosthetics were finalized. It took a little bit longer than originally planned to receive the arms, but it was well worth the wait! His new prosthesis are obviously far more advanced than his passive’s, therefore more time was needed in the final building process.

Here they are!

To complete the finished look, Jim and I were in charge of what the pattern/color would be. Interestingly enough, they use fabric for this process and note: there was not a handy catalog from which to choose from.

Luckily, before getting too overwhelmed, we stumbled upon an awesome thrift store find that worked with our vision! Overall, they turned out great and we could not be happier.

Jameson is indifferent of coarse, but someday he will appreciate all of this, I hope!imageimageimageimage
