Who benefits from the Easi-grip Scissors by Peta?
The Easi-Grop Scissors have been developed for those with special needs and assist adults with weak hands who have grip difficulties and are unable to use conventional style scissors. Ideal for arthritis sufferers, those with Parkinson’s disease, repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel syndrome, spasticity or low tone.
How do these scissors work?
These scissors are fitted with a continuous loop handle (rather than the individual finger and thumb loops) that reopens automatically when the pressure is released: a gentle squeeze with one finger or palm will do the trick. The fact they are lightweight reduces fatigue in the hand of the user. The assistive device has a spring which reopens the scissors after each cutting action. It cuts through paper effortlessly. The scissors come with a blade guard that slides over the blades for safety.
The Easi-Grip scissors come in 3 versions. The Easi-Grip® version for children features a round tip.
4.5 cm round tip for children
4.5 cm pointed tip for adults
7.5 cm pointed tip for adults
