Super-sized foam arm

The hospital gave me this giant foam sling when I was discharged last week. They explained that it can be worn backwards as well to give the hand extra protection so I’ve been wearing it at night. My arm looks really weird, a bit like the Michelin man but it’s worked well (most nights).

Last night I had a dream about having my Covid vaccine and my arm becoming really sore and painful. Then I woke up and realised I’d got my super-sized giant foam arm jammed sideways in a really awkward position. So that was actually the culprit of my arm pain. My hand was fine so I’ll carry on wearing it for now.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
