I have seen all sorts of things asking various questions about the sensitivity to touch among various other things that can be expected when using a flex implant. In anticipation for the Flex One, I will be asking for testimony on the other flex implants about where people have them placed.
I am looking to implant mine where the injectable implants are usually placed between the thumb and index finger, parallel to the index finger. Is there some reason this should not be done with a flex implant? If not is there another place on the hand they can be safely put, or is the forearm the best option?
Does anyone know how impact resistant the flex implants are?
For example would it stand up to the impact of a hammer blow if you were to accidentally hit your hand with it.
Or would it stand up to an impact in a scenario such as pulling on something, slipping and hitting your hand on something else like more of a sideways impact?
Sorry if this has been discussed before, I have looked and couldn’t find anything.
I’ve smacked the crap out of my flexDF on the edges of tables and doorframes several times in the year that I’ve had it. It’s installed behind my wrist. I rub that part of my arm against things roughly all the time, and I have people pinch it so they can examine it pretty often. There’s only a few scenarios where I would be worried about it’s structural integrity.
Bending till the antenna kinks
Sharp blow exactly to the antenna connection points
Thanks for the info.
I’d imagine that it’d be fine then, from what you’ve said I think that it if I do manage to exert enough force on it to cause damage I’d have bigger problems like broken bones etc.
