bdorman...We're having a lesson on Sunday. If he doesn't mind, I will take some pictures of him shooting, and perhaps a short video. I plan to make sure they see this thread in it's entirety.

Is his wrist straight like yours would be if you made a fist and laid your arm on a flat surface? Or is his wrist curled or otherwise mis-formed?

Just trying to get an clearer idea of situation.

Well, I had a lesson working with the young man, who is the object of this thread this afternoon. I learned a lot about his disability, and he learned a lot about his pool stroke! Since the maker of Scott's bridge has passed away, I believe the first step will be to contact Scott Simonetti, and see if he wants to part with the last generation of his bridge. If that fails, then I have an offer from a poster here to have him fabricate something that will work for this young man. So, either way, it seems like a winner. Thanks again to everyone who posted, and offered ideas and suggestions!

Scott,
I saw Scott Simonetti yesterday and passed on your information. In addition to your student, maybe this could also benefit others.

[QUOTE=Scott Lee;4430131]I have a student whose adult son has CP in his lower arm and bridge hand. It doesn't allow him to make a conventional bridge, or even a fist bridge. He bridges the cue over his wrist, and doesn't have any real way to keep it steady, other than gripping tightly. It is especially difficult when shooting over a ball, which he has to do with a "floating" bridge. I had an idea of making an inch wide elastic strap that would go around his wrist, attached with velcro (so he could make as tight or loose as he wanted), and then attaching a velcro strip across the top part where his wrist is. Then you could make a kind of a bridge "head", with grooves for the cue, out of wood or plastic, and have that mesh with the velcro to create a stable place for his cue. His swing is already pretty good, and straight...and this would give him options, both on positioning the "bridge head", where he was most comfortable shooting, and potentially different bridge heights. Anybody run across a problem like this, or have any ideas to contribute? I know there is player in NJ who is missing a hand, and has some kind of prosthetic bridge that fits on the end of his arm (if anybody can post a link to that thread, I'd appreciate it). My guy has his hand...he just can't use it functionally. Thanks for any ideas!




Scott back in the 1970's in St. Louis there was guy with a similar handicap. Someone made him a slip on Leather glove that had a bridge head attached to it. The guy played very well with all considered, but try as I may I can not remember exactly how the bridge was attached. I also do not remember if the bridge was attached at the knuckles or at the wrist. Maybe someone else can take this forward and be more helpful.


Best Regards

Yes, I got your email pics. Thank you. What happens when you have to shoot over a ball? The thing that Paul Fanelli made for Scott Simonetti addressed this very well, with some folding wings to raise up the bridge. (see NYC Grind link in earlier John Novak post on page 4). I'll let you know, but thanks for your offer!
