• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I was wondering about that a while ago.
I'm no biomechanical engineer, (Jim) but |I was wondering if a sort of external brace would be of any assistance for him. Something that could strap across the shoulder, and basically go down either side of the arm, to a joint at the elbow, attaching with a wrap just below.
I am going to call a local leather shop- a hard leather for the arm- with softer leather for the forearm with a couple of buckles on either end. I have to call him again though- he has tried some things i think- but Rochester Strong Hospital has a prosthetics dept.

Would a collaboration between you and the prosthetics dept. of the hospital be possible ? It sounds like a good idea. Keep us posted.
