Raided my magazine stack to look for examples of great print ads. My own cover is in good company with advertising guru @ToddSampsonOz!
If only i could channel Todd’s knowledge to help me make a great quarter page ad for my hairties.
Any advice from the experts on the interweb? My ad will be seen by the occupational therapists who support the limb different community, and I’ll be designing it myself…. @fitnessfirstau

Here’s the awesome Mandy again, this time making a ponytail with a modified 1-UP while wearing her myoelectric prosthetics.

www.1uphairties.com
So chuffed! Mandy, a bilateral below elbow amputee, has found a way to make the 1-UP One Hand Hair Tie work – with and without prosthetics.
I was clapping for joy earlier today when I saw this video. I am always so pleased to see the many and varied successes my little hair tie has provided to the limb different people around the world.

Contemplating a way for a member of the #QuadSquad to use a 1-UP One Hand Hair Tie to make a ponytail unaided.
I met her yesterday at the LIMB-itless National Amputee Conference. She’s a double below elbow amputee, it’s a challenge I hope to meet with success.

Black is back! And Brown is still around. Go to www.1uphairties.com to buy your 1-UP One Hand Hair Ties.

Just a small amount of black is currently available, as I’ve been going through a range of sellers to find the elastic you all like. I’m waiting on a shipment of this black and then there will be many favourite styles for you to pick from.

Was at my weekly catch up with the UQ Robotics club tonight; talking worm gears, rotating wrists and supination/pronation…..doing my best to be encouraging in a world of hurdles and uniqueness.
