I have really enjoyed working with you. The attention to detail and flexibility to revise the design during manufacturing readiness impressed me. I think the final design is great and I look forward to seeing this completed. By the way, your team definitely has the record with me for the most zoom meetings I have had with any group.

Really difficult for small children to understand what’s going on when they have a cast and for adults to manage them. Cool hardware solution to help with this.
