Invented by two guys Scott Kay and Chris Melton, their story is a good one. Also, the Rotater is made in the USA!!
Here’s one video of how it works…
Now, as for me, I’m a slow learner and getting the hang of how to hold it, how to wrap the strap around, when to use the elastic….took a pretty decent amount of time. It’s like watching an exercise video and knowing you have to move in opposite direction as seen on the screen. Some of the exercises presume the shoulder has a greater range of motion than mine does but I haven’t watched the the entire enclosed CD for fuller instructions. My PT guy recommended it highly and said it would help when my PT is over. Let’s hope because PT did help, but I still can’t lift my left arm over my head, like to flag a taxi. Ugh. The doctor said he’d revisit my shoulder next year and I dread what he might tell me – operate again. Let’s hope this Rotater can bring back enough rotation to skip that option!
Once I get the hang of the Rotater, I expect to use it every day but daily life has been a bit hectic here, including this morning when YET AGAIN my Verizon Fios landline crapped out. No dial tone and good freaking luck getting Verizon customer service help without doing the Press One now dance. This is the third time my Fios box has died. each time they’ve come to repair it it’s a newer Fios box. Doesn’t seem to last very long. First appointment is tomorrow so between now and then, I have to call from my cell, and guess what, here in the back woods of Bedford, cell signal is about one dot, two at the most.
The pouring rains last night MIGHT have had something to do with the Verizon outage but I’ve checked outside and all seems well. Nothing loose or underwater.
The sun is out. The lawn guys did the final final final leaf blowing of the season so that monthly bill is done until spring but yesterday the guys who do the snowplowing called to make sure I still wanted to be on their list…yep. I opt for a 3″ minimum to plow. Some people have their driveways plowed with an inch or less. I figure I can get in and out easily, although the oil delivery company and people like UPS do appreciate when I have the driveway clean for them. I get that.
Time to get going for the day. So many errands……Happy December 1 and Happy 69th Birthday to my Iowa “sister” Diana!
