NHS England Multi-Grip Prosthetic Hand Policy

NHS England Multi-Grip Prosthetic Hand Policy

NHS England has reviewed the evidence supporting the use of multi-grip myoelectric controlled prosthetic hands for adults and children with upper limb amputation, or, congenital limb difference. This evidence found the use of such devices to be beneficial, resulting in the approval of funding for people who meet the specified criteria. This represents a huge change in the prosthetics industry and provides significant opportunities for those living with upper limb amputation or limb difference.

Ottobock's multi-grip prosthetic hands transform the lives and abilities of amputees around the world, allowing you to perform simple tasks such as tying shoe laces, as well as giving you back control over your life and improving your self-esteem. The new NHS England multi-grip prosthetic hand policy introduced in August 2022, will now allow more amputees and those with congenital limb difference to experience these life changing devices.

Following an assessment, trial and approval process, prosthetists can now routinely prescribe these life changing products to any patients that fit the listed criteria. You can read the policy in full below, or for more information, we recommend that you contact your prosthetist.
