Bill Taylor commented on Darryl's blog post APRL you tube video
"Hi Darryl, Well, I guess I'm fairly out of the loop when it comes to VC. I had just thought the pros was the same but shorter, with a different terminal device. When lifting with my VO, all the load is on the top side of my stump and the…"

Bill Taylor commented on Darryl's blog post APRL you tube video
"Hey Darryl, Just wondering, wouldn't you have a lot more problems with cable wear and strain on your shoulder with a VC? It seems like if I had a VC, I'd always be clamping down on heavy stuff, and generally doing more with it. As it is,…"

Bill Taylor commented on Darryl's blog post APRL you tube video
"Hi Darryl, I've never used or even seen a VC hook, so I probably have some misconceptions about how they work. I do occasionally have trouble with dropping things because of not enough gripping pressure from the VO rubber bands on my hook. I…"

Hi Bill,

How are you? I'm looking at developing upper body prosthesis that enable interaction with others, shaking hands, holding hands, dancing, feeling a childs temperature, feeling someone touch a prosthesis and sharing emotions. It would be super helpful if you are able to spend 2mins answering my survey! 

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7HN8FJP

Thanks in advance! If you're interested to know more dont hesitate to contact me! It would be great if you could spread it to friends and family who wouldn't mind answering the survey too, through their perspective of how they'd like to interact with a prosthetic hand if it could feel.

Hi Bill!

 Thanks for your message - I'm sorry that I didn't see it sooner!  I am actually very familiar with IPT and help out with grants as a part-time volunteer.  I've heard of you through the IPT grapevine and admire the work you're doing to help folks in the US & Central America.  I should clarify that I do not have an amputation but I joined this forum to be more in touch with what's happening in prostheses. I recently moved to Indiana for work so I'm no longer in the Chambana area, but I hope to meet you in person at an IPT event in the future!

Kindly,

Ruth

Thanks, but I guess they haven't updated there site in a while, I think this was a post from last year. I appreciate the offer, but my son now almost 17 months old is doing great and has a myloelectric arm for about six months now and doing wonders with it. Once again, thank you for your time and offering help.
Michelle
