Install Videos and Pictures 🩸

I had my xG3 installed Saturday evening. It was installed in my left hand knife edge. My experience was mostly painless with no anesthetic. The process was recorded, but I’m uncertain on posting that. Here’s some pictures of the needle in and the site 12 hours later.

I made a post earlier but I see this is up now so probably better to post here Implanting NExT chip - YouTube

Post away buddy, that’s what this is here for.

please post the vid, if you can!! knife edge footage is super rare for some reason and it’ll be great to have as reference for other people’s installs.

Firstly I’m no expert, and the install looked like it went fine.
Just a couple of observations / suggestions for next time.

Palpate the area beforehand

Pinch and tent the skin whilst rolling skin between fingertips , you should be able to feel if there are any veins within the “tent”.

I could see in your video that it looked like there were 2 tents pitched. The pinch and roll would have eliminated that plus it would reduce the chance of piercing something you shouldn’t…

again, not an expert.
And it looked like everything went well.
so congrats and

Here’s the video. I trimmed it a bit to make it a smaller file size. I am not very file sharing savvy, but I think I retained all the important bits.

After this relatively painless install, I jumped all over the xSIID sale. I ordered a red, white, and blue. I showed the installer information about the Titan I had ordered and explained I wanted it on the side of my ring finger on my right hand. He said he would be willing to try it. He has never installed a Titan before. I hope to get a xSIID in both hands and a Titan in the finger with the next visit.

Yeah I had a feeling we forgot to do something. I can’t say I’m surprised we forgot it but at least it went pretty well. Actually just got full size x-rays today. Will be uploading those

This is a quick mid install picture from a xG3 V1 finger installation I did myself last night. I definitely DO NOT recommend a self install.

Looks like a Xg3

That’s what I thought too, but that’s not the usual placement for a magnet
looks like it could be a xM1 too though
Does anyone know why some of them come in the yellow injectors vs the white ones?

Different size needles perhaps?
