Re: Understanding fascia and tensegrity

Thank you for the link, Fred.

My 90-year-old father has had that condition for years, caused by repeated strain from his trade as an automotive and marine upholsterer. He retired at age 82, and at that time the fascia of his hand was so thick that you could see bands of it drawing his fingers inward. He had surgery to correct it, but the tissue has grown back over time even though he no longer is putting the stress on his hand that he did when he was punching grommets, cutting leather and leatherette with upholstery scissors, and other manual chores.
