Hip Improvements
Been awhile since I updated on the hip. I finally got the red tape cleared and saw a specialist.  I had x-rays and an MRI, and no real diagnosis.  My x-rays look perfect, except a blur at the top of my hip socket where it hurt which "is probably a bad x-ray...

I've been wearing sandals or moccasins for six years now, and my arches are almost as high as they ever have been. I think the outside of my foot has flattened somewhat, I can only stick a pen halfway under my loaded foot now instead of all the way through. My second toe is still my longest toe.

Delivery was slow. They had a few delays getting the product shipped due to redesigning both the product and packaging, so it took over a month to get to me. There were some minor issues with assembly, all solvable. The manual on the website is not the manual for the model they sent me, the programming has changed, but the same functionality is there.

After assembly and getting the right instructions for programming, it has worked well. There is a minor wobble at standing height, but not too bad for a frame with no crossbars.

Autonomous SmartDesk 2
So, when you're uncomfortable sitting, but tire easily standing, and you have a desk job, what are you to do?  Well, I'm going to give a motorized sit-to-stand desk a try.  There's a one month lead time on my order, so a review will be a bit in coming.

From Yogitype support:

The Yogitype keyboard can be delivered in many layouts, amongst them the standard qwerty layout.

The design of the Yogitype is very compact and therefore it has less keys then a standard keyboard, so some keys are operated as a combination key, e.g. with the Fn key.

We learned however that programmers do often use already combination keys already regulary. Programmers then find that some required combinations are more difficult to make at the Yogitype keyboard.

Hip roller coster
So, after my recent post about the Gokhale Method , I added an exercise to my PT routine to try rotating my hips so my tailbone pointed backwards while sitting down.  It felt kinda uncomfortable in my bad hip, but good on my back. 7/19.  While in the proces...
