my devices

For my first device I bough magic mold (4.99) and took a colored pencil and wrapped it around that pencil then molded my hand to the pencil.



For my second hand grip I took a paint brush and used pipe cleaners and braided them together then wrapped that around the brush and I used the magic mold to make the pipe cleaners stay, I then purchased a piece of copper piping to go over the top of that so that t was a smooth surface to grip.

how can this be used for others

Another way this could work for another group is if you put weight on it for someone with Parkinson’s so that it gave them more stability.
