You can get a hard wrist brace from the chemist shop and that will help immobilize the wrist until you can get a reading of the x-ray

Different Kinds of Spinal Cord Injury

Accidents such as fall, gunshot, vehicular accidents, mauling and other similar violent incident may result to a very serious complication termed as Spinal Cord Injury. There have been a growing number of cases of spinal cord injury each year and is undoubtedly alarming because for one to incur spinal cord injury means that he or she is in a critical state. But what makes SCI critical? Spinal cord plays a very important role in the body. The spinal cord serves as the passageway and link of all body parts to the brain such that it enables motor, sensory and neural functions to occur. Every bit of processes and movements in the body that is responsible for maintaining life is linked to the brain, in one way or another. And without this link, the person may no longer be able to breath, move and feel.
The type and severity of the injury will reflect the part of the body that will be affected. Spinal cord injury recovery will also be based on the type of spinal cord injury treatment depending on the severity of the trauma as assessed by the physician. It is very critical to provide immediate care and treatment to the patient in order to save his or her life and to still maintain the functions of the body.
There are two major classifications of Spinal Cord Injury namely the Complete and Incomplete and Spinal cord injury recovery will be formulated depending on the type of injury.
Complete Spinal Cord Injury
Complete spinal cord injury is characterized by total loss or absence of motor and sensory functions below the affected level. However, lack of movement may not totally mean that the nerves and axons are gone. In complete spinal cord injury, the axons are still there but are not functioning properly or normally as how they used to be. Spinal cord injury recovery is patterned to help develop functions again and to maintain these processes so that the patient will be able to function the same way again.
Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury
Incomplete Injury happens when only some of the functions below the injured spinal cord level can no longer convey messages to and from the brain thereby movement and sensation can no longer be felt.
Types of Spinal Cord Injury
    ·Cervical Spinal Cord Injury (C1- C8) Quadriplegia/ Tetraplegia:
    - Injury within the C1 and C2 levels or C1 to C3 will result in breathing loss thereby a patient will have to be put under ventilator or other mechanical breathers.
    -Injury to the C4 to C5 affects the biceps and shoulders resulting to significant loss of function to the said parts. In addition, it also affects the hands and wrists.
    -General loss of hand function and some wrist function.
    -C7 and T1 results to limited use of arms and movement of the hands and fingers are no longer possible.
    ·Thoracic/ Paraplegia:
    -T1 to T8 injury affects the abdominal muscles thereby balance in affected. Patients who have this type of injury may no longer be able to perform activities of daily living.
    -T9 to T12 injury control in the abdominal muscles will be lost.
    -Paraplegia is characterized by paralysis or weakness in the lower part of the body. Bowel, and bladder functions may suffer from loss of sensation.
    -Incontinence and bowel and bladder dysfunction may occur as a result to trauma in this level. dysfunction is also possible and the legs will also be affected.

    -Weakness to the hips and legs will be felt coupled by bladder, bowel and dysfunctions.

Boxing gear beginners need to buy

Learning how to box is very exciting. The different punches,ways to defend, and how to move in the ring are things every aspiring boxer needs to master. But before going to that first boxing session, you will need quality equipment that will maximize your ability to succeed and also protect you for injuries. First equipment you need are boxing gloves! Boxing gloves are the main equipment used by boxers in order to fight. These gloves come in different sizes and weights and are made from different materials (leather,plastic, vinyl). It is recommended that beginners buy heavy gloves (14 oz or 16oz) to ensure maximum protection for the hands. Leather gloves will last youthe longest, but the material is not really important for beginners. Second thing you need is hand wraps, which will protect your hands and wrists from injuries. Make sure to have your hands properly wrapped before every boxingsession. Everlast makes high quality hand wraps for about $5. Third thing you need are boxing shoes. Boxing shoes are very light and protect the boxer's ankle from injuries. Last thing you need (for sparring) is a mouth piece, which will protect your teeth from punches.

What does the flickering heart mean on the monitor?

According to it means you have the device in the correct position and it is starting to take a measurement - you should leave it until it completes. I am unsure if this is the correct model however:
"If your wrist is too low or too high, the position sensor alarm will emit a series of two short bleeps similar to a heartbeat.
When your wrist is at the correct position, the heart symbol
starts to blink and longer beep tones are emitted.
Sit still and do not talk or move until the measurement is
Keep the monitor at heart height until the measurement is
To stop measurement, press the O/I START button at any
time during measurement."

I currently have a Relic ZR11971 automatic skeleton watch and earlier this week, I noticed that it had simply stopped working. The "Pendulum" will not move unless I swivel the watch back and forth a couple...

You watch is automatic , which means as long as it's on your wrist and moving it will run. If you have it on your wrist and shake it a little then stops , then it will most likely need internal cleaning. Unfortunately nowadays watch repair shops charge around $35 - $45 to do this task. That's the price here in Florida, I am not sure where you live. I hope this helps

How do wrist guards help with preventing injury when roller-skating?

Wrist guards do indeed protect the wrist during relatively low-energy falls by 'load-sharing' with the wrists and arm bones and by absorbing impact energy

How do you set the day of the week and 24 hour on the watch?

You only have to pull the crown of your watch to its third position ( to set the time) so that if you turn it until it reaches 2am or 3 am the day moves and you have to continue it until you reach the exact day of the week. Then, you don't have to set the 24 hour on the watch because the time remains the same on with the time on your watch. observe it. I hope that i had solve your problem.

How do i put on the wave ceptor ?

This depends on what you mean by your question.
To adjust the size of the band, if you look on the inside of the links (the side that goes against your wrist), you will find that at each link joint, there is a spring-pin (like the traditional pins for attaching bands to watches) which can be easily removed.  Remove the necessary number of links to size the band to your wrist.
To put the watch on your wrist, merely position it as desired, and, close the clasp by grasping the outer buckle with your fingers, placing your thumb against the mid-segment, and squeezing the two together. Then, move that assemblage upwards toward your wrist.  Move your thumb out of the way as it approaches closure and push it together until the outer buckle clasp clicks into place around the stud on the inner segment.
If you are asking how to get the watch to receive the time from WWVB, this will happen automatically once per day (three attempts per day until one is successful).  If you want to manually trigger an attempt, this can be accomplished by holding the "RECEIVE" button for a few seconds until the watch beeps and the display reads "RC!".  It will then attempt to receive the signal from WWVB for several minutes and calibrate if successful.
You can identify whether the last synchronization attempt was successful or not by the display in the lower right corner while the time is displayed.  It will show an antenna and three bar-graph segments if it was successful, or, be blank if it was unsuccessful.
If you mean something else by "put on the waveceptor", I'm afraid I don't understand your question.

Setting date and time

I don't know how much significance this post would make to any now, but I was playing with the watch trying to figure out how to set the time and I have figured it out...

1. Hold the "Adjust" button until where it displays the day of the week starts blinking (This will display the major airport in your area to determine your time zone, mine is "LAX" change this, while it is still blinging press either "Time Memo" or "Recieve" to move up or down)

2. Press "Adjust" again so you see "12H" (I guess meaning 12 hour intervals)

3. Press "Mode" (at this point your seconds will start blinking) to change these, againg press "Time Memo" or "Recieve" to move up or down. (usually I skip past the seconds)

4. Repeat step 3 to do your hours, minutes, year, then the date...(order is as follows)

5. When you are done press "Adjust" then everything will stop blinking, and you are done

This is as much as I figured out and I hope this is helpful to anyone that needs it...
