Picture of SLIP GRIPS -------- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a gripping device (Slip Grip) to assist individuals with limited hand mobility to manipulate objects that they would otherwise be unable to use. The product is used by slipping the finger holds over the thumb and forefinger and then snapping objects in to place via the clips located in between these finger holds. At a slight angle, the clip directs objects placed in it downward, giving the user a natural range of motion. When wearing a Slip Grip, the user is able to use objects such as pens, pencils, pool sticks, spatulas and tooth brushes. Slip Grips are intended to function in a variety of different scenarios without taking away any of the user's independence. TITLE: Grippy for the Grip Challenged. WEBSITE: Yanko Design.
