    Hands and Arms (2)

    Palmtree started a thread on the General Questions and Answers board. I wanted to bring attention to it here, in case there are additional responses:

    I have been struggling with tremors for many years. But they have gotten so extreme they are turning into giant jerks. I am also noticing a steady loss in the strength and dexterity in my hands.

    I use an iPad to type on the internet. It is getting harder and harder to hold the thing and type. Have found voice systems useless. They don’t like my voice.

    Is there anyone else here who has experienced these kinds of upper body symptoms? Have you found any solutions?

    I don’t know how people get the funding to buy these elaborate systems to help quadrapalegics communicate. Lots of ‘I don’t knows’.
