A while back, I was asked to come up with footage to document how my prosthetic hook would work (or not work) when handling an iron and when ironing shirts [link].

It was then a question whether re-design of an iron would help people with prosthetic hooks. I have no idea why they restricted the research for industrial design to hooks. After all, there are far more people that live with one functioning hand after, say, strokes or paralysis than there are amputees.

Since then I started to trouble shoot the situation myself and found that with my steaming iron (regular plastic body steam iron), (a) the grip that was made of hard plastic also slipped out of my (non-disabled) hand, particularly when I was not paying attention, mostly because using the left hand for me is still awkward, (b) the iron was heavy no matter what hand or hook I was lifting it with, (c) its plastic housing broke when it fell because it was not built to last.

ADL (activities of daily living) are a roundabout way measure by which rehabilitation outcomes are measured. They contain household activities or housework, everyday activities, work and play, eating and laundry, cleaning and fixing up stuff. And, what is good enough for rehab outcomes sure is good enough for me. So I figured why put up with blurred concepts when we can be far more concise?

[this is comprehensive, it really is - this time there are lots - and I mean *lots* - of images - puhleeze, wait until they are loaded, get a drink, go to the bathroom, whatever, *then* read]
