Magee's latest rehabilitation technology, the Myomo mPower 1000, was highlighted on CBS 3. The Myomo mPower 1000 is a functional arm brace with sensors that sit on the skin's surface and detect even a very faint muscle signal. When the patient tries to move his or her arm and a muscle signal fires, the motor in the mPower 1000 engages, translating that small signal into actual movement. The portable arm brace has been proven effective in helping with functional repetitive tasks practice during therapy and assists patients in daily living activities in the home.  You can view the broadcast here or below.
