PS if it involves hugs or handjobs bugger off and ask the missus, we are strictly mechanical. :)
[QUOTE=Lee Roberts;40591 Humm, not sure why that would be, if you let me know the conditions i can try to reproduce and debug. [/QUOTE] not sure what the conditions are. using Opera mobile browser 12.10-ADR on Android ICS 4.0.3/ASUS Transformer TF201 tablet.

Ahh its probably somthing to do with the vb mobile style then, unless you view as a desktop using the tablet..Me
spent 15min on a hand exercise bike machine this morning... talk about knackering... i was less exhausted cycling up Holme Moss last year.
Brought it home to me how much fitness/lung capacity I've lost and also how much less power you have in arms v legs anyway.
On another note, the 1-armed medical technician does amazing things in his workshop with just DRO equipped tools, no cnc, including custom bits for wheelchairs and custom cutlery and other adaptations.
You have a clever active mind Irving so pretty sure it won't be long before you start to come up with your own adaptions for not just yourself but others who are in need as well.
Likely to be here 3 - 4months at least
Yesterday tried FES on my arms to stimulate fingers. All a bit trial and error to find the right location for the electrodes. Very weird watching arms n wrist moving on their own! Didn't find fingers on this attempt. Stimulation is like an electric shock and quite painful.
Yes that form of treatment is painful. Are they doing any micro-current to try to stimulate nerve growth or regen? It has been shown to help in some cases (contrary to many wishes medicine is not a one shoe fits all), I know of a few Neuro's who have used it with stroke and spinal injury with some results. Best wishes and good luck.
See you are all ready looking forward, keep it up. I am still rebuilding body strength from after the cancer, it sucks.
Well 12weeks in post-accident and its pretty clear I'm not going to recover much hand function, now classified a C4A with C5/C6 tendencies. So considering how to continue using my workshop.
I have a small MAXNC10 CNC mill, good for small alloy and plastic parts. Should still be able to use this once I figure a way to mount and align stock & change tooling.
I have a 7x12 mini-lathe. was planning to CNC this and may yet do so, or just add DRO? again, mounting & aligning stock is an issue & changing tooling.
I have a bigger 800mm table round-column mill c1991 I could CNC but not sure its worth it. Same issues as above.
Not sure how I'm going to solder PCBs either, esp the hand-placed SMD stuff...
Have you seen some of the devices that help paraplegics continue with a healthy sex life yet?
There are engineering genius's out there who are able & capable to think outside of the box.
Stop focusing on what you can't do & focus on what you can. You are a long way off yet to be filling your head with assumed negatives.
