  • This really is a problem though. I've posted about on another thread, but this is a real condition that I find particularly disturbing. It's essentially a version of something called delusions of parasitosis, kind of like morgellons disease. The…
  • Well, that depends a bit on how you want to go about accomplishing those goals. To be honest, I'm actually in the sabre boat currently. My interest is in neuroprosthetics, but prosthetics isn't actually an MD field. I'm aimed toward neurology wit…
  • From milwaukee, Wisconsin myself. I've only encountered like 2 other wisconsinites through the forums so far. There doesn't seem to be much of a community here, but it is nice being able to expose people to something new and spread the word about …
  • Pointing it out doesn't provide the kind of help that is really necessary, but this is essentially a version of delusions of parasitosis. The condition is one of the most tragic I've encountered studying psych and working in the ER, but I second so…
  • I'd be happy to contribute if you're still looking for info! I've had an nfc implant for a few months now and I'm always glad to share the story and my experiences. It might be easier to email me, so feel free to send me a message at [email protected]
  • Hey everybody, thank you so much for the replies to this post and I'm sorry for responding so late. I don't mean to bring this back, but I felt bad for never getting back to after posting. I've read through all the replies, but I'll just post a br…
  • A repeated stimulus would probably eventually cause habituation, the same reason we don't notice our heartbeat or consciously feel the clothes we wear throughout the day. However, I don't know to what extent this would occur or how long it may take…
  • To be considered, I'm using this nerve integration system may be adding an unnecessary step. While you could probably read mechanosensor-related nerve activity through some means, you would still need a means to interpret and use that information. …
  • This might be worth noting, and I dont know if there's a thread or something for this, but the read zone on HTC one phones is tricky. They have a metal backing and the antenna is actually run through a line/ break in the casing near the top of the …
  • Ah damn lol, though its nice to hear I'm not the only one around here!
  • Hey there!   Where in the Midwest are you?  I'm certainly not the most experienced person on the site, but I've had an NFC implant in place for a few months now and would be happy to contribute or answer questions you may have!
  • If you're still up for participants I'd be happy to join. I have an NFC implant and would love to share my perspective.

  • @alexsmith out of curiosity, what poem do you have stored on your NFC tag? That's a really neat idea.
  • Well perhaps I am the first wisconsonite cyborg! I'll have to work on spreading the word a bit... Sorry to hear about the intense work schedule, but certainly let me know if you end up back here later this week. I have a car and whatnot, its most…
  • Unfortunately I ended up having to work the past few days :/ I don't know if you're here frequently, but contact me again if you end up back around in the future. Were you contacted by anyone else by the way? I've been wondering if there are any o…
  • Hey everybody, just an update, everything seems to be healing well. All the bruising went away and now it's just that lump. I had a physician I work with in the ER take a look at it too and she says it looks like a hematoma and is nothing to worry a…
  • Hey man! What a surprise, I actually live in Waukesha about an hour away from Madison. How long will you be around?
  • No, I don't feel a pulse in the lump. It's a little sore, but only with palpation, but I try not to agitate it too much. It's also somewhat irregular, like it's most firm over the are the needle went in and near where the implant ended up. (about …
  • Thank you so much for the replies everyone, I've been following the comments closely and appreciate the feedback.  Ik I can be wordy, but I figure it is best to be thorough with something like this.  As an update, the light bruising to the dorsum of…
  • Looking back the post is pretty dang long, but I added some better showing and links for pics. Let me know if that works better. I am able to feel what I believe is the implant about 5 mm from the thumb mcp joint and it does read well when near …
  • Hey!  Thanks for the reply and sorry for the length/terrible formatting. I'll repost it with a bit of touching up and hopefully some real pics soon.
  • Hi there! First post on the site. I'm actually applying to MD and DO schools this summer and I have my undergraduate in psychology, neurobiology, and pre med.  I work in the ED at the moment, and I'm planning on having the xNTi implanted in a few …
