COVVI Hand Testimonials: James And Ashley Young
“The annoyance I feel when I take off my arm is clear evidence to me of the utility the COVVI Hand can provide in my daily life.” When James Young lost his arm and leg in accident, he was worried that losing his arm would be the end of playing video games. An activity that meant so much to him and he never thought twice about, was ripped away from him in a split second. Most of us will overlook our privilege to perform everyday tasks with ease.
“In the real world, there’s a lot of two-handed design, but you can overcome a surprising amount of it by doing something makeshift…I was surprised by the number of tasks I could achieve with perseverance and lateral thinking.” No one should have to live life with makeshift anything which is why we’re so pleased that James found COVVI and we could support him in life.
The COVVI Hand allows users to complete a task in the classic way as we know it, James conveyed his amazement at the ease of doing so, “it’s such a satisfying and alleviating moment, especially as a high upper arm amputee.”
Another patient advocate and James’ partner, Ashley, has always lived with the mindset that she could do anything with one hand; but why should she? She lived up until 2019 without the COVVI Hand and was astounded by how that small introduction opened up a world of possibilities for her. Ashley find the quick responses time impressively quick and “allows her to feel like the hand is in tune with her body.”
As a fashion model, it wasn’t just functionality that Ashley was interested in. “I find the COVVI Hand stunning in its design.” The customisable covers are a particular feature she loves due to being able to match them to her outfits.
We pride ourselves on meeting our users’ needs in every way and Ashley and James really demonstrate that.
