I am a research assistant for Given Limb Foundation. We intend to
develop a set of tools that upper extremity amputees could use to
maintain their prosthesis on their own. Either it would be an all in
one tool or it would be a set of tools necessary for repair.
We have decided to incorporate the following tools :
The Elastration Band Applicator
Extra rubber bands, extra cables, cable anchors, spectra line, screws
(cut to appropriate length) of the various sizes used
Some small sets of tools like these
A Fine Iris Surgical Scissors
A hemostat to use as a clamp, e.g. when you are adjusting a harness
or threading spectra
And a small attractive pouch to carry all this stuff while on
vacation or for a conference.
Would love to have your suggestions as to
1.What is your opinion on the tool kit ?
2. What should be contained in the tool kit
3. Whether you prefer an "all in one tool kit" or a number of small
tools in the tool kit.
