Arthritis Hand Tools

Post by StevePIraq » Sun Mar 19, 2017 11:12 am

I know an elderly guy who has severe arthritis in his hands and he needs some gadgets to help him.

Does anyone know where I could buy anything, he especially struggles to open bottles, cans and the likes. Lazada don't have much in this way and I haven't found anything in MV. There was all kinds of stuff available in the UK as so many people have Arthritis.

Sorry, I don't know of any gadgets available there...
... but, for screw tops and small jars, wedging them between the door and doorjamb works pretty well...

My first thought was an oil filter removal tool but if you look on Lazada using the search "jar opener" in the kitchen section they have some items that may be suitable working similarly to the middle of the items in the photos.

It loaded okay on my ipad so not sure but if you go to aliexpress.com and search using arthritis tool it is amongst the items on the first page of the results.

This was the way we did it when I was a kid, the problem is carrying the door around with you.

Thanks guys I found the tools on Lazada, my mistake was looking under health and not kitchen. When looking under health I got lost in the condoms and lube. Actually some of those tools on Lazada could well be sex toys, oh dear there I go again down that dark Soi.
