Easi Grip™ Garden Trowel

Gardeners can securely grip and control their Easi Grip Garden Trowel without bending the wrist in spite of arthritis, stroke, hand, wrist and arm impairments.

Description

Gardeners with one arm or arthritis can securely grip and control their Easi Grip Garden Trowel without bending the wrist. After a stroke, amputation, arthritis or other arm limitation it is nearly impossible to use standard garden hand tools. Garden trowels, hoes and most other small tools have straight handles forcing the wrist to twist forward while gripping the tool. When the wrist is twisted forward in this way, the grip strength of a hand is reduced by approximately 50%.

Hand tools are difficult to use with impaired grip strength or limited range of motion. The Easi Grip Garden Tools solve these problems because they allow the worker to grip the handle without twisting the wrist, providing maximum grip strength. The arm cuff (sold separately) connects to the forearm to provide control of the tool similar to using two hands.

 

Workers with common conditions such as these would benefit from Easi Grip Tools: Arm Amputation, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome/Repetitive Motion Injury, Hand Injury, Cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The natural way to hold a tool! Easi Grip™ tools make gardening easier by reducing stress and injury to your hand and wrist. The unique patented handle design helps prevent injury by maintaining a natural grip. Each lightweight tool weighs only about 1/2 lb. All metal parts are made of 100% stainless steel that does not rust, and slides easily through the soil. The bright yellow handle lets you quickly spot a tool that you’ve put down in the garden or tool shed. Prevents soil adhesion. Tool glides smoothly through soil even when wet and stops the tool becoming heavy with the weight of any adhered earth.

The Easi Grip Arm support is sold separately
