Gripping and Grasping Aids
Sadly, daily household chores can be very challenging to seniors or someone who is stricken with arthritic hands. Arthritis can be very painful and can turn the simplest of tasks, like turning a door knob into a daunting and frustrating one. Assistive opener devices, such as a quality jar opener, make up for an insufficient grip and lack of hand strength.
Helpful adapters such as gripping tape can make items easier to grasp. You can place this tape on just about anything around the house. Household arthritic gripping aids include the bottle openers, jar opens, non slip silicone, easy grip tape, door knob covers and other convenient home and kitchen aids to promote an independent life style.
