This shoulder joint opens new opportunities for prosthetic fittings in the shoulder area. MovoShoulder Swing is ideal for prostheses with basic functions or in combination with high-tech components.
The free swing of up to 40° reduces pressure from the prosthesis socket and allows even bilateral amputees to achieve natural, harmonious movements.
Locking at 30° anteversion and unlocking is controlled by specific upper body movements or with the sound hand. No additional control elements such as switches or a body harness are required. Abduction of up to 20° facilitates more comfortable movement patterns during many activities of daily life. This especially applies to activities done close to the body or while sitting.
The joint weighs 242 g and has a total length of 230 mm.
