The technology behind the Espire Elbow

With an emphasis on function and design, the Espire Elbow range by Steeper are easy-to-use and anatomically correct prosthetic elbows which can be programmed to fit individual needs. The Espire is available in five models, each side-specific, a range of colours and two size options. From lightweight, mechanical models to myoelectric, powered joints - each elbow has the same reliable functionality and sleek design. 

After extensive research, a design was created that blends technology with humanity to appeal to a wide range of users across the globe. The Espire Elbow is engineered to emulate the anatomical forearm and wrist, with even weight distribution and ensuring the arm looks natural in a comfortable resting position.

The innovative gear box of the Espire Pro enables a high lift and hold capacity allowing users to confidently hold 11kg, and dynamically lift 4kg to perform everyday tasks with ease. The Pro uses a custom 50W brushless DC motor, which provides the speed and torque needed to flex and extend the elbow. The strategic placement of the gearbox in the elbow joint provides maximum comfort, balance, and control of the limb. It automatically locks in both directions, achieving reliable confidence with elbow movement and positioning, and also features an electronic, silent free-swing. The free-swing is engaged automatically when the elbow reaches full extension - a feature that can also be activated using alternative inputs such as myo signals or switches set up via the Espire Hub App for iPad.
