    " terminater hand "

    If you know what the "terminater hand" is? Or have one? Will Medicare pay for one?

    Are you an upper extremity amputee???

    Here is some information I found on that item:

    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/good-...155942235.html

    It appears to be a very sophisticated myoelectric prosthesis...and no, Medicare does not cover this type of prosthetic arm.

    For someone with a SCI to use it, you would have to amputate your lower arm and hand first...and still have motor control over the muscles in your shoulder and upper arm.
