Look! It's a rainbow

Colored o-rings do much more than hold the wire in place.  They also create a fashion statement and give the patient a sense of control over their treatment.  New colors can be chosen almost every month.  Sometimes they follow a theme- orange and black in October; red and green in December; red, white and blue in July.  Sometimes they represent sports team colors or school colors.  And sometimes they are just for fun.
