The app for Myo Plus pattern recognition

The Myo Plus app lets you easily use and configure Myo Plus pattern recognition using your smartphone or tablet. The app is the central interface between the user and the prosthetic hand’s control device. It serves as a “window into the prosthesis” and visualises the movement patterns in the residual limb.

While the prosthesis used to be something of a “black box”, the app now makes the user’s individual movement patterns directly visible for the first time.

Examples of Myo Plus app functions such as control adjustments by the user.
