Long story short, I’m trying to change jobs and the down time in between might be the perfect time to get my Titans installed. Finally. But, I’ve kinda walked back from a finger placement. I’m thinking of placing it in between the bones on the back side of my hand. See Pic.
PLAN A.) With a dot on each knuckle, I’d be placing it in an incision where the line is, just behind the knuckles and between the bones. My thought is to install it on it’s edge, so that the flat sides would face my thumb or pinky and get it kinda deep so that it’s NOT at skin level. The trick is, I don’t know what’s in there. I mean, my meat obviously, but am I looking at cutting into mostly unused space, or am I gonna slice up tendons? Also how would the working of my hand (tendons and bones moving about) pressure the magnet placement?
I’m also thinking of doing almost the same thing on the inside of my hand, but AHEAD of the knuckles and between the callouses. This time laying the Titan flat.
If you put your index finger from your left hand, between the middle and ring finger of your right hand, and then put your left thumb on the right palm, you can pinch the loose flesh in the spot I’ve marked. Feels like plenty of room.
It does get tight if you fully extend all your fingers, but I think that would be the only time there wasn’t extra padding to cushion the magnet. As long as I don’t go around bitch slapping people, should be fine. I think? Maybe?
I think both are not as nerve rich as a finger. Plan A is riskier due to tendons, but would be better shielded from blows. Plan B is probably more sensitive, at least the magnet would be closer to what I’m trying to feel, anyways.
Are you doing this yourself or is someone helping you?
Plan A concerns me for two reasons. If I put a finger from my other hand in that spot and move my fingers up and down I can feel a tendon moving. If the plan is to put it further down inside the hand that tendon could easily be in the way. The other being that on my hand at least I can see plenty of blood vessels in precisely that area, again with depth I would be very nervous about that.
This one actually surprises me - I’ve read somewhere here on the forum that you should keep a distance of at least 5 cm between the Titan and any other chip, and I doubt there is 5 cm of meat between P0 and -P0… anyone tried out placing the magnet closer to other, already installed chips? Any experiences?
Yep, I believe @Equipter has a Titan in -P0 and then some xSeries in P0 just above, and I know another forum member with samppa magnets in -P0 (both hands) and xSeries implants in P0. AFAIK, both have had no issues using their RFID implants
