Of course we can tie our shoes in any such way (all resulting in the same):
- using one hand and stump (again) (learn how to do it)
- using a prosthetic hook
- using a prosthetic hand
- even using a ""bionic"" hand
But then, trying these options falls short of really resulting in a good walking experience for some reason.
However with all these great options listed above, you will not go anywhere. To be sky clear about it: you need no ""bionic"" hand (expensive) but you need to know your way around (priceless).
For starters, there are tie knot and lacing variations. Of course, normal shoe laces with a normal shoe lace tie still happen to fall apart once the tie is too loose. So what to do.
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?
