Three days after carpal tunnel
It would be nice if I could say that since I am an amputee I've
had my share of surgeries and hospital stays so I should never
have any other medical issues. However, as we know, life doesn't
work that way.
a secretary in my mid 30's I was facing carpal tunnel surgery on
both of my hands. This is a common surgery that usually causes
the patient a couple of weeks of discomfort and requiring
someone else to open the ketchup bottle. But what if you need
your hands to help you walk?
I'm an above knee amputee; when I don't wear my prosthetic I
use a walker to help me get around. How could this happen if I
couldn't put any weight on my hand or wrist? My answer came in
the form of an ad in "In Motion" magazine. The LegSim was an
answer to my prayers.
I talked to my prosthetist and physiatrist about the device
and showed them the complimentary DVD. Just a few days after my
right hand carpal tunnel surgery, Joe came to Connecticut and
spent a few hours fitting my LegSim to me, speaking to my
doctors and prosthetists, and training me how to properly use
the device. What a blessing!
Facing my left hand carpal tunnel surgery, I know I don't
have to worry about getting around because I have my LegSim. The
peace of mind that Joe and his invention have given me is
invaluable. Thank you Joe.
