--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Prosthetic terminal device for golf club. A golf club is inserted into a tapered piece of metal pipe and a thumb screw is tightened to hold the club in place. Attached to this is a metal rod cut in two and held in place by a piece of polyurethane tubing (to simulate the wrist movement in swing- through). The third part is threaded and attaches to the wrist unit of the prosthesis. A piece of sponge rubber tubing covers the area where the device inserts into the wrist unit to protect the sound hand from injury during backswing and follow-through. No special prosthetic modifications are needed, will fit any wrist unit with any golf club. Includes pictures. SKILLS REQUIRED: Assembly. AUTHOR: Bhala, Ram and Schultz, Charles.
