Ok. I am trying my best to keep people updated on all that is new with the i-LIMB. I get several questions a day from different ones that are just now joining the adventures so I am going to try and answer some of them. I got an email asking the weight of the i-limb. It is probably in between 2-3 pounds. I tried to put it on our bathroom scale but it didnt register on the meter. I guess that scale is just for fat people like me! LOL
Anyway, the difficulty that I have with the i-LIMB at times is the weight. I dont have much of an arm below my elbow so there is a lot of weight that it is having to support. Being so short with that section of my arm – it tires out pretty quickly. I am wearing it up to 8 hours a day on some days. Believe me, when I take the new limb off I am a hurting puppy.
Tonight we had a little fun with the i-LIMB chasing lizards. I didnt catch any even though I am so bionic – LOL.
I am trying to learn how to use my new hand while cutting steak. This is a little more difficult than I originally thought it would be but I am getting better at it. I will get it – it just may take me some time.
