1. Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder
The Kuhn Rikon Ratchet Grinder, or mill, is as efficient as it is exquisite. A high performance ratchet operating mechanism and a durable ceramic grinding stone combine for easy, effective grinding of salt, pepper and spices.
The clever ratchet design provides a large, easy grip ‘ball’ handle that minimises any fine pinching and gripping required for standard grinders. In conjunction with the extra leverage of the handle, this product makes it a breeze for anyone with arthritis or other disability that reduces hand strength.
To grind, simply pull the ratchet handle back and forth – it’s easy on the wrists and particularly suitable for those with dexterity problems.
2. Oxo Good Grips Button hook - because we all need to get dressed!
The Oxo Good Grips button hook is a thoughtful gift for anyone who struggles to do buttons - particularly arthritis sufferers or those with a weak grip. The product gives users a secure, cushioned grip on hard-to-grasp buttons. The soft, cushioned grip of the Good Grips® Button Hook makes the sometimes difficult task of buttoning clothes easy. The built-up handle is made of rubber like material and features flexible ribbing that adapts to any grip.
3. Oxo Y Peeler - because we all need to eat!
The Oxo Y Peeler features a sharp, stainless steel blade that glides through even the toughest fruit and vegetable skins with ease. The soft, comfortable handle cushions your hand as you peel, and is non-slip, even when your hands are wet.
The Y Peeler is part of Oxo’s Good Grips range which features an abundance of useful kitchen utensils and adaptive devices designed to aid daily living for arthritis sufferers.
4. Kuhn Rikon Easy Jar Opener - great for arthritis sufferers.
This ingenious kitchen gadget makes a great living aid for seniors and arthritis sufferers or the elderly with low strength. If its children opening jars, housewarming gifts, camping, picnics, or presents for your loved ones and friends this jar and bottle opener will be appreciated by all. The jar opener will save time and simplify life for those living with rheumatoid arthritis in their daily routine.
5. Arthritis Pens
If your loved ones suffer arthritis in hands, the well-designed arthritis ring pen takes most of the tremor and muscle pain out of handling a pen. Easy to use, one finger goes through the ring creating a solid grip and the ergonomically designed barrel provides a natural resting place for the writing finger. The barrel fits snugly between two other fingers eliminating pressure and pain. Can also be used as a toe pen.
This ergonomically designed pen is suitable for right or left-handed people who may experience difficulty in holding a normal pen due to conditions of arthritis, tremors, and lack of hand and forearm muscle tone. Its design provides added control and support to the writer.
The Arthritis Ring Pen Ultra uses the same ergonomic principles as the original Ring-Pen, but can be removed and used on your own pen, pencil, paintbrush, cutlery, toothbrush.
6. The Keywing key turner - of course!
Many of our customers discover the Keywing during their search for a thoughtful gift for those with arthritis. We thought remiss not to include it in this list for those readers who haven't seen it before. The Keywing is a helpful everyday product that clips on to keys to provide additional surface area and make them much easier to find, grip and turn - reducing pain for those living with rheumatoid arthritis.
- Grip Keys with Ease: The comfortable dimpled domes give fingers a firm grip to stop you fumbling & dropping keys. The nylon body provides a ‘warm’ touch point for cold fingers.
- Turn Keys with Ease: When clipped in place the Keywing provides extra leverage so that far less strength is required to hold and turn a key, helping to reduce hand pain.
- Find Keys with Ease: The range of attractive, vibrant colours remove the frustration of guessing 'which key is which' and makes them easy to identify.
