At Advanced Prosthetic Technologies we are dedicated to revolutionizing upper extremity prosthetics. It is our aim that through innovative design and cutting edge technology, amputees will be encouraged to continue to lead active and adventurous lives, and to pursue their highest ambitions.
The Arm is the result of over ten years of research and development by Dr. William Craig, an amputee himself and doctor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Toby's Cycle Works in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The Arm has been designed for amputees who require a high performance, durable, multifunctional prosthesis for activities such as mountain biking, ATVing, motocross, snowmobiling, and cycling.
Built to mimic the mechanics of the human arm, The Arm offers four unique features: a Fox Racing Shox custom tuned compression dampened elbow, easy connect/disconnect system, adjustable angles, and a multifunctional terminal device (The Hand).
The Arm has been used by Dr. Craig on the most challenging mountain-biking trails that Vancouver's, The Shore, has to offer. The unique features of The Arm offer him the control and functional positioning to execute skills such as carving turns, bunny hopping, launching the bike, lifting the front wheel of the bike over logs, climbing hills, and nailing heart-stopping technical descents.
