So many people take for granted the ability to reach out and grab ahold of something. The human hand is, in many ways, the place of human possibility. For some of us, the loss of an upper extremity can be so, so challenging. But you are far from being alone. At Above & Beyond Orthopedics in Grosse Pointe, MI, we have the latest, state-of-the-art upper extremity prosthetic devices for both cosmetic appeal and 21st-century functionality.

There’s no one right reason to seek an upper extremity prosthesis. For some, their concerns center on appearance or feeling whole and at home in their own clothes wherever they go. For others, functionality is the primary challenge, and regaining it becomes an absolute must. For all reasons, Above & Beyond has you covered.
Passive prosthetics can bend, lock, and articulate like normal, providing balance and bracing without active gripping. This option restores moderate function & your sense of self.
For transradial and transhumeral amputees, body-powered prosthesis can provide gripping power through ulterior movements (or contractions) of the chest, back, or other body parts.
This form of upper extremity prosthesis uses a distinct power source for superior control, gripping, and object manipulation. Myoelectric prosthetics provide consistent, smooth handling.
Hybrid options combining two or more prosthetic types are available, and can be further tailored to individual needs so that you feel as empowered as possible each and every day.
