Multifunctional Closed Hand-Held Useful Thing

Prints (0)


This is an assistive tool to help someone who cannot open their hand to grasp small stick-shaped objects such as pens and silverware. The ball-shaped part is designed to fit in the palm of a closed fist with the two sticks held between the second and third finger (see mockup image on this page). The sticks can then be squeezed more or less as needed to hold things. The bumps on the bottom of the sticks can be used used to push keys on a keyboard, to scratch one's head, or whatever else the user thinks of!

As a disabled person myself, I wish assistive devices were more interesting-looking, so I tried to design this as a piece of art as well as a functional object. I hope people like it!
