Nice job.  Thanks.

Since I am always wondering "where we are in the advancing "game"" I created this template which is attached.

I keep this in the operatory and make notations of millimeters advanced as well as percentage of the patient's total range of motion.  

This is my first version, but I believe it will helps us.  Hopefully it may help you as well.

How I use it:
Determine ROM
Set George Gauge at 65%
Record both in chart.
Arithmetic - to determine where you are on the advancing game, figure each advance of .5 mm is +/- 5%, based on the beginning ROM.  10 mm ROM = easy:  .5 mm=5% advanced.  14 mm ROM: .5% advanced = .7 mm.

Maybe this is uber anal, but it works for me.

The doctor leading Sierra Leone's fight against the worst Ebola outbreak on record has died from the virus, the country's chief medical officer said.
The death of Sheik Umar Khan, who was credited with treating more than 100 patients, follows the deaths of dozens of local health workers and the infection of two US medics in neighbouring Liberia.
Ebola is believed to have killed 672 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the outbreak began in February, according to the World Health Organisation. The contagious disease has no known cure. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhoea and internal and external bleeding.
Khan, 39, hailed as a "national hero" by the health ministry, had been moved to a treatment ward run by the medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières in the far north of Sierra Leone.
He died on Tuesday afternoon, less than a week after his diagnosis was announced, and on the same day that the president, Ernest Bai Koroma was due to visit his treatment centre in the north-eastern town of Kailahun.
"It is a big and irreparable loss to Sierra Leone as he was the only specialist the country had in viral haemorrhagic fevers," said the chief medical officer, Brima Kargbo.
The west African airline Asky has suspended flights to and from Sierra Leone and Liberia as concern over the spread of the virus has increased since the first death was reported last week in Nigeria's coastal city of Lagos, home to 21 million people.
Togo-based Asky said it would no longer take on food in Guinea, where the outbreak was first identified. It said passengers leaving the Guinean capital, Conakry, would be checked for signs of the disease before departure. The airline added that medical teams would be deployed to screen passengers in transit through its Lome hub. The Lagos victim was a Liberian who travelled to Nigeria on Asky via Lomé.
Nigeria's largest carrier, Arik Air, has suspended flights to Liberia and Sierra Leone because of the Ebola risk.
The fatality rate of the current outbreak is around 60%, although the disease can kill up to 90% of those who catch it.
