The LUKE arm is a modular prosthetic arm that is configurable for different levels of amputation including transradial, transhumeral, and shoulder disarticulation. In its maximum configuration, it has 10 powered degrees of freedom including a powered shoulder, humeral rotator, and wrist flexor with ulnar/radial deviation. Multiple powered degrees of freedom can be moved at the same time. The hand has multiple, preprogrammed grips using four individually controlled degrees of freedom. The hand also includes a sensor that provides grip force feedback. The LUKE arm provides resistance against light rain and fine dust, allowing wearers peace of mind when using the arm outside the home.
The LUKE arm system consists of a prosthetic arm and accessories which are used by a certified prosthetist to create a full upper extremity prosthesis indicated for individuals, age 18 years and older, who have partial or full upper limb amputations or congenital defects. The device is used to assist in activities of daily living (ADLs).
Caution: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a licensed healthcare professional. The LUKE arm is not appropriate for all users. Areas to consider in the evaluation of LUKE prosthesis suitability may include: skin conditions of the residuum such as burns or poor skin coverage, significant peripheral neuropathy, significant comorbidities which interfere with the ability to control the prosthesis, significant uncorrectable visual deficits that would impair the ability to see prosthesis movement, its controls or its indicators. Inappropriate use of the of the LUKE arm could result in serious harm or death.
