makeshift hand splint/sculpture

Charles McFarlane

Our friend Charles McFarlane, who attends highschool in New York City, sent us this astonishing photo in an email… “Recently my friend hurt her wrist. Our teacher, whose father is a hand surgeon, rigged this up for my friend until she could get to the doctor.”

Stainless steel ruler + rubber gloves (or are they balloons?) = an ingenious splint, and to our eye, a strangely fabulous sculpture.

(BTW, we invite you to share your own in-the-moment improvs and brilliant ideas on our Facebook page. And check out other finds we post there. To participate, you have to be able to sign in to Facebook.)

Thanks, Charles!
