While the basic principle involved seems very smart, there are several drawbacks which became apparent once I started trying to use this device. The first is that it is not as simple to learn to use as the promotional material makes it seem. It is not very quick, or easy, to get this device strapped on, and though not uncomfortable to wear, it was awkward to try and sit down while strapped into this, and once you are sitting the leg portion protrudes way out in front of you. It is impossible to get into any car/truck with it on, necessitating removing it and putting it back on each time you enter/exit the vehicle. Also, you need to have very good balance and coordination to safely use this crutch, and it is rather like riding a racing bike with pedal straps. You are strapped in, and should you start to lose your balance, you cannot just "bail" out of this device, so that if you do fall, further injury is quite possible.. All that said, if you are young, and fit, and coordinated (as the gal in the promotional pitures obviously is) this device could be just the answer for you, to allow you to do activities that require the use of you hands, and to go up and down steps more easily, something you cannot do with traditional crutches, or walkers, or knee scooters. If you have to get by without weight bearing on your foot/lower leg this may work for you. It is well made, sturdy, and comfortable to wear, all other shortcomings aside.
Short and sweet here. I have old firmware running on this device. Comcast won't upgrade it because they say they are not responsible for it. The motorola website states:
This book was used by a lecturer on my Computer Systems course and, although not required, I bought it. I found it to be well written and easy to read. It gave a lot more informative insight than I would have received if using lecture notes only. Kieran
