Above Elbow Amputation
An Above Elbow (AE) Amputation is an amputation of the upper limb between the elbow and the shoulder. A short amputation (near the shoulder) results in the loss of shoulder rotation; however, with a long amputation (just above the elbow), the patient should retain good shoulder function. Multiple types of terminal devices are available for this amputation level to meet the patient needs. Evergreen collaborates with only the best prosthetic device manufacturers to ensure the best quality products and patient satisfaction.
