This is my first post. I had a hemorrhagic stroke in my cerebellum caused by a non-hereditary AVM at the age of 45 over 6 years ago. I have tremors. I use this method in order to turn screws without losing a bunch. My occupational therapists never mentioned this so I believe this is new.
I thought it could potentially help anyone with tremors which is why I’m sharing.
Welcome to the forum. Sorry you had cause to join.
We all have to find and adapt ways to work with our post stroke challenges
Thanks for sharing yours
Are you aware that there are many cheap screwdrivers on Amazon with the magnet already built in? Both as hex bits or as ordinary drivers with a handle - these are particularly suited to laptop repairs
There are also companies who specialise in aids- all sorts of imaginary imaginable stuff! The simple stuff are things like kitchen & eating aids - eg chopping boards that will hold things still when youve only got one hand. Key turners when you have not strong enough grip to just turn a key ( I guess these are more universal needs cuz not many of us take laptops apart! Although I have done it once)
How is your recovery been going beyond the inventive attachment of a magnet to your screwdriver
