While my hand grip is intact at this point in my life, I considered what possibilities may come down the road for me to use EazyHold. Arthritis may affect my hand grip in the future and make it more difficult for me to clean, cook, or groom myself. My family has a history of stroke and diabetes. Stroke can affect my strength and movement in my arms and hands. If I had diabetes, I may develop neuropathy, which can affect how my nerves communicate with muscles in my hands. EazyHold would be a tool to consider in helping me remain independent in my daily activities. For instance, I could put EazyHold on a hairbrush in order to brush my hair or a stylus in order to use a tablet device.
With my experience working as an occupational therapist in skilled nursing facilities, I contemplated the potential uses of EazyHold in my practice: toileting with a personal hygiene wand, grooming, oral hygiene, shaving, bathing with a long handled sponge, cooking, cleaning, and leisure activities (i.e. card playing, magic tricks, fishing), and exercise. If you are an occupational therapist, email me more ideas on what you think you could do with the EazyHold!
