My initial thought was movement towards the entry wound when healing, idk if it applies for fleximplants tho’.
If it applies, it’s something your installer must consider, but then I don’t see a problem.
The other thing that popped into my head is. that the skin moves when you turn your hand.
So I assume even when placed perfectly, when you turn your hand you will see at least 1 side of the implant. Don’T think that’s something to worry.
My wrist is pretty thin (for a man anyway) and it wraps around it just fine on both sides. The edge of the implants comes to within a quarter inch of the sharp “drop” around each bone on each side. So the implant is pretty close to the width of my wrist.
That’s when it’s centered. When I turn my wrist, the implant moves from bone to bone, but it doesn’t deform and stays within the width of my wrist.
Sorry it’s a bit blurry, but I didn’t want to make no noise getting the tripod out and all. Also, I’m no professional videographer
The last bit is me trying to give a “first person view” of the implant as seen from my elbow, and following the twisting angle of my wrist, to show the implant moving from side to side. Not sure it’s very convincing, but that’s what it is.
Yep, mine did that. A lot. Bad luck, the edge up ended smack on the reverse side of the scar and irritated the hell ouf of it, and the backside of the stitches for quite some time. But it all sorted itself out in the end.
Maybe dont place the flexEM in the center, but where one of the LEDs would be, then theres a little cap in the middle you could manually cut out…
Wait no I remember, we’ve been through this before.
Rosco already asked amal all these questions somewhere, look at the development of the doNExT.
It’s in that giant flexNExT thread somewhere. I can’t find it just right now.
We have been through this extensively. Amal had to work quite a bit to devise the doNExT. He even had to relocate the blinkies off-center to maximize the center hole, and IIRC it wasn’t an easy job for him.
