TD for equipment operator
Posted By: Markus Saufferer on April 16, 2012
I have a client who is TR amputee who has been working as a heavy
equipment operator, including excavators and bobcats. He has been using
both a "locked" TRS Grip prehensor and the OttoBock steel ring terminal.
The problem is that there is always a bit of play between the terminal
and the joystick control. He has seen somewhere a terminal, much like an
inverted tapered cup with fabric or mesh sides that works well for this
purpose. It goes over the joystick and locks on securely with no play.
Does anyone know if this available commercially or will I have to invent
my own? Any other ideas?
