One of our biggest concerns with this external fixator is that it's a swinging ball of death when I'm crutching around. It destroys our things by ripping them apart with its sharp metal prongs.
Yesterday, I got permission to take a Dremel to get rid of the sharp edges. This made me happy for several reasons:
- No more sharp swinging death
- My external fixator is now an at-home DIY project
After some grinding, no more death spikes. It was kind of exciting to modify an extremely expensive and important piece of equipment, attached to my leg no less.
