It is a known problem that long stumps don't allow to fit a lot of pin and wrist unit size unless the prosthesis ends up too long. Here is the workaround they built for me. There are shorter or smaller sized parts but why succumb!? A longer pin and longer bolt are nice because they offer greater mechanical stability.

There are a few applications that I found indispensable to start building up confidence in prosthetic use. They obviously center around what I find relevant in terms of doing.

You will find these to provide iron hard test units for your prosthetic setup. No force, no violence and no rage is happening here - this is pure skill building.

AKG K27i headphones are superb value for the money. However, as you can fold them up they have two extra joints. That makes them hard(er) to put on.

I was not able to fix the laundry rope one-handed or with the bare arm stump. So I used the hook for it and, no problem.
