Summary:

It performs a function that needs two variables to make things happen. It monitors those two variables. Ground speed and altitude make this thing do what it does.


"I wouldn't say it doesn't serve a medical purpose"
In other words, this item can lend itself to keeping a person "healthy" but no, it is not used in the medical field.

And the probe looking end that is not a probe at all is the "working" part of this item.

It contains a CUTTER.
