Erin gears up for summer!
Notes from NSM

A tale of two chest supports

Kyle had been using a hip belt with side release buckle as a chest support. It looked like this:

Then, because it is designed to work with Kyle's thoracic "lateral" supports, we recommended a switch to the two-piece center release Monoflex™ with swivel buckle. The result was this:

Perhaps more importantly than looks, however, Kyle found that door #2 gave him "better support." And for a guy who likes romping with his dog, that's a good thing! 

Note also that Kyle is using our large size U-shaped joystick handle, which works well with his ulnar splints. He needs a certain height and surface area to support his wrist and enable accurate driving.

We hope to feature Kyle with his own dog soon, as we follow his progress with the Monoflex!
