Re: [IPk] Re: seeing to insert/disconnect


I do not have good sight so do not really see.  Besides with the quickset, 
the inserter hides the quickset from view.  This one goes in at right angels 
to the skin and it is just a matter of placing the inserter and pressing the 
2 buttons.  I would not need to see it to place it in other parts of the 
body but I find it difficult to get to these other parts as I have frozen 
shoulders so haven't tried it yet....  I might do so with difficulty.
