COVVI Hands Provide New Lease Of Life To Bilateral Amputee
COVVI’s Italian partners, Officina Ortopedica Maria Adelaide, recently shared the heart-warming story of 60-year-old Paola Milanese, who made the decision to switch from her outdated prostheses for her very own pair of COVVI Hands.
Paola lost her hands due to an infection, however, she didn’t let this slow her down and opted for a set of myoelectric hands to help her complete tasks in her day-to-day life. At the time these prosthetic hands were considered top of the range, but as technology continued to develop and innovate, she eventually found that the old prosthetics struggled with more complex jobs, such as cooking and writing.
Dr. Roberto Ariagno, director of the Maria Adelaide Orthopedic Workshop and the one who fitted Paola with her COVVI Hands had this to say, “We are very happy with the result and how Paola is facing this new phase of her life… the hand offers 14 customizable grip patterns, making daily gestures and ever greater autonomy possible.”
It always inspires us to see the freedom experienced by our users once they’re fitted with a COVVI Hand. One of the main goals is to provide support in everyday life, to the point where users don’t have to overthink menial tasks anymore. This story has touched the COVVI team and we think it’s the perfect demonstration of how working together can help to change multiple lives forever.
